Quality pictures with an inferior camera
Hi all, I have a 55-gallon tank that I would like to photograph, but I am using a Canon A520 and am having difficulties. The room in which the tank sits is too dark to turn off the flash - everything is blurry from the shutter being open long enough to collect sufficient light - but with the flash on, all I get is a big white "star" in the center of the tank. Any thoughts? I even resorted to taping wax paper over the flash in an attempt to mute it a bit, but that had disastrous results. :)
Unfortunately, a better quality camera is out of the question for right now.
