Aquarium photography

Butterfly fish. Photo by Paul Van Allen​

An excellent article with some great aquarium photography tips. Although the author is drawing from his experiences photographing fish in public aquariums, many of the suggestions would also work with your own tanks. The article is geared toward DSLR cameras but some of the tips should work for non-DSLR cameras, especially those that offer some manual controls. Digital camera sensors have come a long way, especially in "point and shoot" cameras. You can get some very impressive shots from non-DSLR cameras by paying close attention to techniques like those recommended in this article.

You can read up on all of these tips at the Nikon USA website. For more aquarium photography tips visit the Photography section of the Library.
