Any tips on lighting? How to reduce shadows?
Whats a good tripod to start out with ? I only want to spend about MAX $300 I know that won't get far but can it ???
This one is even better than the one I purchase a year ago. http://www.costco.com/Dolica-Prolin...with-Ball-and-Pan-Head.product.100213896.html
Just got a dslr camera, this is a good read
Thanks for the suggestion downloading both apps currently.
wow i wont to lean to do this
You should shoot in manual not aperture priority. Most cameras do not have a native ISO of lower than 100. Also, you do not need to go lower anyway as you can control the exposure with the shutter speed. You also should set the white balance in camera. Most full frame and some crop sensor cameras give you the option to adjust the white balance manually. No orange filter needed. That said, most modern cameras will not show any noise at higher ISO's. You can shoot as high as ISO 24.000 with some models without introducing noise.
A greater DOF will not degrade sharpness. The opposite is true. The greater the DOF the sharper the lens will be. All lenses have a so called sweet spot at which they are the sharpest. This is usually at around f/5.6 -8.
If the DOF is shallower, (smaller numbers) the picture will be softer ( e.g. the dreamy Canon 85mm f/1.2L look).
What's more important than the size (most web pages can handle larger pictures or will even downsize them) is the color profile. If you don't set your color profile to sRGB your colors will be off once you upload it. You can do your edits in a different color space I don't see why, though, since you're not preparing anything for print anyway) but you have to convert it to sRGB before you save and upload it.
You don't need exposure compensation (EV). You realize that you only need that because, in aperture priority, the camera won't let you control the shutter speed, right? When you shoot in manual mode you won't need to use any 'advanced' settings. You also don't need noise reduction as noise reduction does not apply when shooting in RAW. It only applies when shooting in JPEG.
And you don't need the mirror lockup function either because if you choose a high enough shutter speed, which you would when shooting in manual mode to compensate for the bright light above your reef tank, you would eliminate any camera shake, especially when using a tripod. I can shoot as low as 1/60 without getting a blurry picture.
I am following want to learn how to do this as well
