Salamander male and some of the girls

The sun decided to come out today so I took some photos. This male is really fun to photograph and his colors are nice and bright. the females are a little harder, I have to pick the girls who do the best out of their tank and I make sure to put them back before they get stressed out.





My girls usually have very minor if any nips in their fins, this is unusual and I feel so bad for her. She doesn't seem to care though and is acting normal. Still haven't figured out who did it.

Absolutely gorgeous photos and Bettas!

You have probably been asked before, but what kind of camera do you use?

I use a Nikon D3000, with a 18-55mm lens for the bettas since I don't have a macro lens. And thank you, I have a lot of fun taking their photos :D

If you want to see more I have a Tumblr filled with betta photos

Beautiful photos. Great shallow DOF on the female's face.
What are you putting them in for the photo sessions?

Thanks! I have the Aperture completely open to let more light in, the more open the aperture is the smaller the depth of field will be.

I think the containers are Beanie Baby display cases, a lot of breeders use them to jar their fry.

I will have to try to track down something like that to get some photos of mine. I love shallow DOF, but my large aperture lenses are manual focus - keeping active fish in focus in a large tank is impossible.

Really wonderful photos. I think half the reason I wanted to keep bettas has to be the beautiful photo opportunities... My camera needs more exercise. Your great shots are inspiration to try to get some of my own.

I can't shoot with anything but manual, automatic focus drives me crazy XD I keep the lens as zoomed in as possible and move the camera rather then change the focus :)
