Enantiopus kilesa DSLR Pics

Post by Razzo » Tue May 17, 2011 4:46 pm

Hey Guys,

My daughter just got back from college and she brought my new DSLR home. She needed it for a photography class and now I am hoping she will teach me how to us it. In any event, here are a few pics since Sunday. Hope you like them :D

My largest male had been the only male displaying and digging pits and building sand castles; however, recently, the next largest male has been coloring up and doing all the constuction. It's as if the big male just gave up to the younger male. In any event, the displaying male is the 2nd largest male in my tank.

Great shots Russ. I'd like to know what settings you used, I can never get photos of these types right.

Dan, just download EXIF viewer (or stuff like that) for your web browser so you can quickly get to know about settings. :)

BTW, nice pics. They look pretty with that kind of lighting (not all of such "glittering" fish do).
Cheers
Piotr

Dan, sorry, I am such a newbee with the DSLR that I am not sure what those settings were. I'll pay more attention next time.

Btw: thank you.

No lighting on the tank, just ambient room lights and the flash on the camera.
