    Default Fish Photography Video

    Not sure if this is what people were looking for, but here it is. Its 26mins of me talking, so its probably pretty boring LOL. This video went more into my very simple setup (26mins for that??? I know right....), some of my thought process, etc. I didn't touch on settings or anything like that as its hard for me to give you an accurate suggestion since your tanks are all different then mine. If you want me to try, I can always do another video touching on that. Also, if you have anything I missed or forgot to add in let me know and I can make another or share it or whatever.

    By the way, its an odd feeling.....I'm used to being on the OTHER side of the camera, first time I've made a video like this. I shot it in HD, if you want to see me in HD. Gave Simplydiscus a shoutout and added a link to description.

    is there a way to download your vid? my internet isn't reliable, so it's near impossible to watch streaming video that long .
    you could sell instructional dvds!

    Still watching the video. It is great and very informative. Thanks so much for taking the time to prepare this and for sharing your knowledge. Your fish are cracking me up! They were constantly thinking they were going to get a meal with your movements.

    Thanks all, Trish I'm not sure.....I have the video file on my computer but its very large and would take just as long to send/download. As for the fish eating, they are pigs those are the ones that get fed 4-6 times a day as it is!! LOL

    Hey Matt,
    Did you take the NADA pics using an external flash illuminating the fish from top?
