Taking fish pics
 
Sorry, I had no idea where else to place this.
While taking pictures of fish without a flash is a tough task to accomplish with very good results, using a flash makes it ten times easier. Now is using a flash ok with the fish? Does it stress them? Do they like it?
I know you can't really ask any of them, a few times that I did use a flash they just seem puzzled.
.
Do you use a flash? :oops:

Sometimes I use the flash, the colors seem more vibrant. When I'm trying to get a good close-up I tend to use the flash. But I don't like the background popping out so bright when I do. My fish do seem startled by the flash. I'm not sure how much it actually stresses them. I'm sure it must a little, I know I don't like the flash from a camera.

90% of the time I use the flash. My fish dont notice what so ever. I figured its like lightning during a Tstorm to them
