Jeff, that Acro is sick. How do you take a pic like that? Setup, digital processing, etc?

Of course, Jeff had to come along and steal the show.
Great pics, Jeff.

Eric, that shot was taken using an electron microscope.

ReefWreak,

I used my Rebel XT, 100mm macro, tripod, and remote shutter release. I think that shot was an 8 second exposure. It was taken during the night, and every light in the house was turned off except for the VHO actinics over the tank.

I had to do a little color correction in post-processing with photoshop. The camera's attempt at white balance turned the purple tips to a drab blue, so I had to pull some blue out and add pink to get the purple color right.

The coral is actually a GARF purple bonsai. The body of the coral doesn't show any of that greenish hue under daytime lighting, it's more of a light/tan color. The polyps are always bright green. It's still a nice looking coral during the daytime, but it's absolutely stunning under actinics.

Jesus H. is that an amazing shot. I'm going to try to keep those parameters in mind when I go shooting next time. D'oh because I forgot my tripod up at school

Hey Jeff,

Which remote shutter release are you using? I just ordered the 100mm Macro lens a few days ago and now you got me thinking about another gadget

Thanks,

Nick

It's a Canon RS60-E3, corded shutter release. It was very inexpensive, under $15, but very handy with a tripod. This model works with the XT, but not the higher end bodies. Those make you buy a much more expensive shutter release, I guess the connector is different.

although i have been taking pictures for years, i am fairly new at aquarium pics.
and i must say the LEARNING CURVE is a B!TCH.
much props to jeffbrig for coming up w/ very focused pictures through that curved glass.

the following pictures were not taken by design.
they are mostly setting experiments in my camera, along with lighting variations...
in other words, dumb luck.
most of the pics i took came out pretty badly but i ran across some interesting suprises.

hope you all like.

Obviously I did not see this thread the first time through or I would have had funny stuff to say about the NAMBLA calendars that Manny and Mel share. Anyway, everyone's pics look fantastic, I love the actinic acro. I will try to post a few later.
