DrBlueThumb: Going to advertise on all of canada;s kigigi board, hope to get a few more voices on here. Mar 27, 2017 12:02:39 GMT
DrBlueThumb: Taking pics can be done like mine: dslr,tripod,remote switch,exyension tubes and a 50 mm lens. it's the cheapest way to go but you have very few inches of focus distance. So I put the camera against the tank and the coral up against the glass Mar 27, 2017 12:10:39 GMT *
DrBlueThumb: I like to take pics in the dark. and then focus stack them using photoshop. This is done by taking several pics @ diferent focuses and using the program to blend them together. Mar 27, 2017 12:16:24 GMT
