    I sometimes try to catch my fish on the move as I think it
    makes the pics a little more interesting, here’s a few attempts…

    The clown acting for the camera made me laugh.

    “Oh no he’s looking. Quick, play dead!” here.

    Brilliant set of pictures again mate.

    I forgot to add, who needs planet catfish when we have such fantastic photography like this. Great pics Mike. I have a Fuji finepix S5500, any tips?

    Just tried a new technique and it seems to have come out alright. It’s not there yet, but it’s getting better

    Thanks for the kind compliments folks, much appreciated.
    As Matt will verify i’m a bit of a camera nut and I just like
    sharing pics and looking at other folks photos and fish.

    Richy the fugi is a great camera and you should be able to get
    good pics of your fish with it, (I had a finepix S7000)
    Thing about fish photography is getting as much light into
    the tank as possible and use the flash (diffused) this will
    help freeze the fish as will a fast aperture ( shutter speed)
    DOF is determined by F stops, low F stop will focus more on
    the fish and less on the background, it will also need more
    light and a faster shutter speed. A higher F stop will have
    the opposite effect, These settings are for manual. (M on the dial)

    Try this on your S5500…

    Put the camera on CAF (continuous auto focus)
    iso 100
    Flash on (diffuse with tissue paper if you are getting flash back)
    Macro on (flower symbol)
    Tank lights on, room light off

    See how that goes mate, if you need any more help just shout.
    Ps… practise on large slow moving fish if possible,
    it’s also a good idea to focus on something in the tank,
    rock/ornament and wait for the fish to swim by.
    Cheers Mike.

    Dunc’s new technique obviously didn’t involve resizing pics correctly /laugh.gif” style=”vertical-align:middle” emoid=”:lol:” border=”0″ alt=”laugh.gif” />

    Edit – What a pair of donuts. We didn’t have the picture re-sizing function on the forum enabled. Sorted now!

    thx for your guideline Mike…I got some decent pics… HERE! (they’re still loading )
    btw how can you use tissue paper to diffuse the flash?

    Mervyn that’s a Platydoras costatus, a much smaller cousin of M. irwini.
