How’d you shoot that

Every year, our club is required to hold a business meeting per our bylaws. This is when we hold elections for new BOD members and discuss club business. Current paid members of DFWMAS may vote. To enhance the meeting, we are flying in Gary Parr to speak to us about Aquarium Photography. We are excited to be able to bring him in and hope you will attend to enjoy his presentation. Often members wish for photography help, and heres yet another chance to gain some knowledge.

Presentation: How’d You Shoot That.

Your reef is thriving, the colors are beautiful, and you want some photos to share the fruits of your labor with friends and family. You break out the camera, fire off a few shots, and end up with blue, blurred, and distorted photos, half of which are ruined when the light from your flash unit reflected off of the aquarium glass.

Frustration sets in and you ask the inevitable question: How do I get decent shots of my reef?

How’d you shoot that will show you what equipment you need and don’t need, how to get the proper exposure, and what makes for good photo composition. You’ll also learn how to photograph fish, get quality full-tank shots, and shoot corals, all of the way down to the feeding tentacles.
