Tip 2: Photograph with the aquarium wall parallel to you camera, not at an angle. If you catch the aquarium glass at an angle, the organism you’re photographing will likely look distorted.
Tip 3: Be sure to clean the glass before you photograph! Glass smears will be apparent in your photo, so be sure that the glass that you are shooting through is clean.
Tip 4: Edit your photo to so that it looks natural: Photos can always be edited afterwards, quite easily thanks to digital photography and availability of editing software. However, you should keep in mind that you want to accurately represent the animal you photographed. For example, if you photograph a vibrant green coral that doesn’t turn out as green in the photo, you can edit it to restore its vibrant green color. You wouldn’t want to misrepresent the coral by editing it to be blue, though. In addition to editing colors in your photos, you can also crop them, or even adjust contrast and exposure. Keep in mind that while editing can make a photo better, taking a good photograph with good focus and exposure to begin is vital to having a good photo; not everything can be fixed with editing.
