  1. Just like Gregory (gho), I also share they same interest - aquatic photography. I have been keeping fish / plants for past 15 years and combining photography with aquatic hobby was a dream come true. Here are few pictures I took at friend's gallery in Houston.

    Those look great Jay. I assume you kept the white balance cool for an aquatic mood.
     
  3. Thanks Chris.

    Yes. I really like that "reefish" look when I photograph salt water tanks. When photographing freshwater, I tweak WB.

    Very, very nice Jay. What was your set-up (cam / lens / etc.)?

  5. Frank,
    In this perticular shots, I used D70 and 105 f/2.8. I usually get creative with multiple flashes used wirelessly, special phototank, tripods etc. But this had to be quick so I basically put the hood on the lens, and placed the hood on the glass.
