I got a new camera for Christmas so I thought I'd share some new pictures. It's my first DSLR camera so I'm still learning how to take good pictures with it. Fish in these pictures are between 2.5 and 3 inches and are starting to show some good color.

Full tank shot?!

Those are some of the cleanest photos I've ever seen of fish. Might not win for "style points," but for reference photos, those are amazing.

Thanks for the nice comments. I'm really enjoying trying to get the most out of this camera. It's a Canon Rebel T2i.

Nice. Were you on a tripod? What settings?

Yes, I was using a tripod. Taken at night with all room lights off, using telephoto 70-300mm lens about 6ft from the tank, angled slightly down.

Exposure: 1/60 sec
F-stop: f/5
Flash: Built-in only

Thanks! Good info. :thumb:

Did you crop these pics? I can't see any of the tank background? Post process?

Yes, each is cropped about 25%. My background is black so most shots end up with a solid black background. No post processing on the fish themselves. I get about 1 usable shot from every 20-25 I take.
