Default Lousy Photography

I read through all 175 pages of my new camera book and now I can either take yellow looking pictures or blue tinted pictures. Some day I will be able to take normal pictures,
They are not even sharp.
The ISO was 100 I set the WB and the thing was set to Fine.

Same tank, same lighting, same camera.

Make believe the lighting is in between these pictures

Hey Paul,

I think you have a drunk in the house and is mistaking your tank for a garbage can. j/k LOL!! Nice FTS. Don't worry I just bought a Cannon elos and I'm learning how to use it too...

your pictures are not lousy Paul, you just need to experiment more with different exposures, lightings, settings ect. The link that twinreef posted is great, even pros could get some usefull info from it but specifically for shooting tanks, there is lots of valuable info in ther.

Beleive me, i tried to take pictures as good as twinn or pnoy and many others but it takes some time and practice.

by the way, what camera did you get?

link bookmarked, thanks twinreef.

Paul, bump your ISO to 1000 that will freeze your fish. You can also use 400 for faster objects.

Depending on the camera 1000 ISO might produce extremely grainy images. Which camera are you using Paul?

if you can shoot in RAW format, you can do a lot more with software manipulation.

It's a digital camera so I don't think I can shoot in RAW

Most digital cameras will let you shoot in at least JPEG and RAW. RAW images are just that, raw; the camera records exactly what the sensor sees, no processing/compression is applied. They are not optimized by the camera or adjusted for color, etc. giving you the option do to it all in post-processing. This allows you the flexibility to fine tune the images to your liking, more so than with JPEG which degrades in quality at every save.

Canon doesn't have RAW because Adobe has not written the code for it.
