The Cardinal Tetras I got in late January has a parasite and all died when I was medicating the tank a few days after I got them. So I got some Glowlight Tetras.

#250741 New aquarium flash photography technique

Very nice , Bill.  Are you taking the latter series in macro mode?

 

:)

No I used the Tamron 16-300 and cropped.

Thanks. I got a few more tonight. I'm getting good at this :) I turned the saturation down on the D5300 so the blue in the Cardinal Tetras didn't color clip and oversaturate.

#250692 New aquarium flash photography technique

Posted by LightMeter on 30 January 2018 - 12:48 AM

In the past when I would use off camera flash for aquarium photography I had the problem of reflection on the glass. Today I tried a folded box on top of the tank to block light from the flash from lighting up what's in front of the tank. It worked well! The 2nd flash does nothing other than to serve as a counterweight so the tripod does not tip over. D5300, Tamron 16-300, Cowboy Studio wireless radio trigger, SB-80DX in manual mode. The MeFoto backpacker tripod was small enough to sit behind the tank.

Today I added 2 Corydoras Catfish to the 10 gallon tank. Set the D5300 on a tripod and managed to get a good shot of them still. They get to about 2 inches(50mm) I want to photograph my White Cloud Mountain Minnows, but off camera flash is the only option with them. They NEVER stay still. Not even for 1/250 of a second :)
