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.
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.)?

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.

Looks like a very fun hobby. That 3rd picture looks like cotton candy! All very nice shots...very calming.

Doh! Now I see my blunder. Thanks Jay and Gale. Hey, at least I've got a little loyal following ;)
