How to Photograph Your Aquarium Fish

Photographing the fish in your aquarium isn't easy. Here are some tips to get the best photographs of your aquarium inhabitents.

1. Clean the tank
Make sure the glass is spotless, inside and out. A quality camera will pick up all the smears and algae on the tank walls and potentially ruin a fantastic shot. After you clean the tank, allow the water to settle before photographing. Cleaning a tank often stirs up impurities that will show up in the photo.

2. Proper Lighting
Avoiding glare is one of the hardest aspects of photographing an aquarium specimen. The best way to prevent this is to make sure the room is dimly lit and the aquarium is very well lit. If your aquarium doesn't already come with a light, balance a good flashlight on the cover or have someone hold a flashlight over the tank. Be VERY careful not to drop the flashlight into the water.

3. Absolutely, Positively, NO FLASH
Not only will flash increase the glare, but it'll cause undue stress to the fish. Remember, fish have no eyelids so flash will scare and temporarily blind them. There's a reason most public aquariums prohibit flash photography.

4. The Position of the Fish
Wait until your fish is against a contrasting background for the best shot. This will make it's colors and shape show up much better. If your fish has elaborate fins, try to take a picture when it's fins are flared rather than folded. Also, if you have a very wide aquarium, you'll want to wait for the fish to swim as close to the front as possible. The more water between you and your subject, the more distorted your photo will be.

5. Shutter Speed
Fish are almost constantly moving, so a fast shutter speed is a must. The speed you should be using is at least 1/125s and preferably 1/150s. In order to accomplish this you will most likely need to switch your camera into manual mode, as in low light cameras will usually give you a much lower shutter speed.

6. Use a Tripod
Keeping your camera steady is necessary to avoid blur. If you don't have a tripod, stack some books and balance the camera on that. No matter how steady you think your hand is, it's not steady enough to capture a constantly moving fish.

7. Focus
When photographing fish, a manual focus is preferred. If your camera doesn't have a manual focus, you'll just have to play around until you find something that works for you and your aquarium. Most cameras will allow you to focus when you get right up against the glass, but some will focus better standing a few feet back and zooming. Remember you can always crop later.

8. Quantity Leads to Quality
As with all photography, the more pictures you take, the more likely it is that you'll get a good one. My camera (a Nikon Coolpix P80) has a "sports continuous scene" mode which takes 13 frames per second. If your camera has this setting, I highly recommend using it to photograph your fish.

9. Computer Enhancing
Using various computer enhancing programs will greatly increase the quality of your photos. You can crop, adjust the white balance or contrast, add backlight and more. If you don't have adobe photoshop, there are many free programs that operate similarly. I operate on photoscape, but I've also heard great things about picnik, picasa, gimp, and paint.net.

I always recommend using a digital camera with an optional manual setting when photographing anything, but it's especially true of photographing fish. Good luck in capturing your aquatic friends on film or disc.
