24. Practice. Practice. Practice. Aquarium photography can be very difficult to master. The more photos you take, the better aquarium photographer you'll be. Experiment with different camera settings, different lighting, different lenses. Keep a log of the different parameters while shooting. Compare your log notes with the photo results so you know what works and what doesn't. Eventually, you should find the right settings for your environment to get high quality photos of your aquarium.
What makes Rambo a professional photographer is that she -- or at least the aquarium -- gets paid for the photos, at NZ$2 a shot.

17. Wear solid, dark clothing so you won't be easily seen in the reflection of the glass in your photos. Discus can also be scared if you wear bold, striped shirts, which might cause them to hide in your aquarium. Photo of Aquarium Services - Dallas, TX, United States

During my visit to the eighth edition of Salento Aquarium, I did a lesson on a subject that I really like “Aquarium, how taking pictures“, and are therefore here, as promised, to propose a mini-course as a guideline how to photograph in the aquarium, getting the best with our equipment, obviously the course is open to all, since most of what is written applies to any photographic genre, even though the examples will focus on the photographs in the aquarium.However, as anyone pointing a camera at a tank will discover, it isn't as easy as you'd first expect. In this article I intend to look at several examples of common aquarium photography subjects and explore the ways in which the issues inherent in photographing one medium from within another can be overcome. But first a look at or should that be a 'look through', glass.This is the first part that covers the basics of photography, the choice of lenses and the setting of the machine, the second part will address specifically the photographs in the aquarium, going into the details of how to photograph aquariums, fish and corals , and the last part will cover instead the development of the digital negative, the RAW file.The good news? Ford, a fine-art shooter and photography professor at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, has catalogued a set of techniques that makes shooting in large aquariums doable. Here we offer a handful of his best.This raises one of the first common faults hobbyists face in aquarium photography and is directly caused by the glass/acrylic and is the most important tip I can share.Editing photos is a very popular method of color correction and enhancement. It is particularly important with aquarium photos due to unusual coloration and lighting that can be picked up from the camera sensor. DSLR Raw photos also need to be processed before they can be used. There are a number of free and paid programs that enable the user to change contrast, brightness, shadows, saturation and color balances. Editing your photos can make a huge difference in what the end result looks like, it is nice to have the photos replicate what we see with our own eyes and not what the camera perceives. It is also helpful improving the color and definition making for spectacular photographs that can be entered in competitions.
