    I recently had Neil Hepworth visit to take some photos of my latest aquascape. He is the regular photographer for Practical Fishkeeping magazine. Neil's photos will appear alongside a feature I'm writing on my aquarium.

    I thought some of you guys may be interested to see some of the gear he uses.

    Neil uses a Canon 5D. Not sure on the lenses but I know they cost more than the camera.

    Again, no idea on the flashes etc.

    Neil will be sending me a DVD with all the images, of which I have permission to share some low-res shots.

    Anyway, a photo paints more words...

    And here is Graeme Edwards, fellow UKAPS founder, with his Canon 350D.

    About 8 months ago, Neil took some photos of my 2.5 gal. Iwagumi for the magazine. They are featured in the Sept issue of PFK in my step-step article for this nano.

    That's awesome, George!
    I like it how one tube was left in to create a back drop affect.
