OK, 2 birds one stone.

this is my fish choice for autumn blush and also an image that i like, rolled into one post.

i've bought 12 of these little things. I'm an absolute noob when it come to fish, i just struggle to see them in a scape so i always end up buying loads of fish and it becomes untidy. i like these so i may expand the shoal. :D

i've made this image larger than i usually do, so click on it ;)

here's a couple more. i've just taken these. i've had it set up most the day so i can just fire shots of practising etc.

i did swap the backgrounds for a light blue one and white. its amazing at what a completely different feel backgrounds give!

All of these images are just one flash head as i'm isolating small areas. when it comes to proper shoot time i'll pull the tank out and light it properley, with a little advice from tonser.

Do you shoot in RAW?

allways jase. it allows for full control over....2 most important things IMO

exposure
white balance

contrast is also dealt with within RAW editing. these images are straight from camera placed on a background in PS.

the addition of flexible lighting has allowed me to pinpoint and control light over certain areas.
