Photographing a subject that’s inside an aquarium, such as fish, can be difficult. Limited lighting and the ever-moving fish are challenges you’d have to face when trying to photograph.
The following are a few tips for producing a successful photograph:
1. Determine the correct exposure and white balance
Our cameras usually choose an exposure that’s too bright or too dark when faced with this sort of circumstance because it’s affect by the color of the fish or the background. So it’s best if you use the Manual mode and manually set the exposure, or you can use the exposure compensation function (set to be under-exposed or over-exposed) if you use the P,A/Av, S/Tv Modes. To ease the process of setting the correct exposure when in Manual Mode, you can activate the Live View feature of your camera (if available). By using Live View, the results of the current aperture setting can immediately be viewed on the LCD screen.
When photographing aquariums, camera will produce a photograph that has too much of a blue tint. To get a neutral photograph, you’ll have to set the WB accordingly. You can lessen the effect of the blue tint by setting the WB at fluorescent or you can manually set the Kelvin value of your WB to your desired tone.
