Few pieces of my collection!!!!

Recommended Posts

Borrowed a DSLR camera from my buddy and took a few shots. It's actually harder than it looks.  I think i might find myself a new hobby in reef photography.  Any photography experts here please give me some tricks.  Old camera Nikkon D300 with Tamrom 90mm macro.

I'll take a piece of that last one ;-).

That one is still recovering Mike. It's a Hawkins i had it up high and it got bleached out so i moved it back down and getting colors back up.

Beautiful colors! Nice to see a few chalices in the mix too! You are being humble but it takes a lot of skill to get sps and Los growing that well and maintaining that kind of coloration! Nice pictures too!

That Bonsai looks better than mine by far, I'm thinking mine is to high, it's lost nearly all the purple in the main structure just the tips are purple but I've got to much going on and no space to move it...

 

You're doing great with the sticks (and everything else for that matter)

Corals look great!

 

Pics are pretty good too. Since you asked for some tips, on macros try a higher f stop, and really be mindful about where you want the center of focus to be. Your depth of field with a macro lens is very shallow, so with colonies you need to choose which part will be completely in focus. Your doing great though. I'll warn you, the photography bug hobby can be more expensive than the reef keeping hobby. I love it though.
