Primary I'm a portrait (amateur)
photographer. My portrait style has also had some influence on the
way I take photos of fish. And it helps a lot to find the right crop
and arrange a suitable light situation that emphazises the character
and beauty of each fish. It took a few weeks to adapt my experience
in portrait photograpy to the fish photograpy and I'm still learning
each day ;-) . In some points both portrait and fish photography
are very different, especially how to use strobe lights and
how to avoid too strong reflections from fish, gravel, window, glass,
your white t-shirt, etc...
Btw...I'm not keeping all those
fish (at the moment ). Currently in my tanks
Iriatherina werneri, M. praecox,
Peseudomugil signifer, P. gertrudae, P. furcatus, Rhadinocentrus
