DSLR Fish Photography Settings?
I've spent hours trying to figure out a decent set of configurations for still images of fish in the aquarium (particularly Neon Tetras and Harlequin Rasboras. I have a Canon Rebel T3i DSLR with the standard 18-55mm zoom lens. The lighting of the tank is between 6000K to 6500K. What do you guys use in terms of F-Stop, Shutter, ISO, etc? Also, I have the camera set for RAW over JPEG in order to obtain the best detail.
Had the same question a while back. Turn off the room lights, get a tripod and bracket like crazy. I'd close the aperture down (that worked well for me after someone here suggested it). Each tank's a little different and what works one day might not work if the lighting shifts slightly. I did have good luck adjusting the lighting with Photoshop on some of the darker pictures.
