Led/ flourescent photography

I just want to thank everyone for the feedback. I am very grateful. To answer everyone's questions: first, manual shooting, I have not tried manual shooting yet. Ive never tried manual shooting before so once I get a chance I will play with manual focus on my camara and provide feedback.

Pardon my lack of experince, but I have no idea what EXIF data represents. After I get a chance to play with the manual focus and with the timer I will post a picture. I am about less than 12 inches away from the subject. Ive tried moving back, but I am still unable to focus on the object.

I do have a high end led lighting with high PAR, but Ive seen pictures of corals from other people and I am not sure how they did it, but the coral comes out great.

I have not order a grey card yet. I do not think I will be able to do this since one of my fish is a big biter. As soon as my hand touches the water my hand becomes his enemy so it would be kind of hard to get a steady shot of the grey card.

Finally, I forgot to mention that my tank is bowfront. This means that the front glass of the tank is curved. I am getting the feeling that because the glass is curved it is making it really hard for me to focus on the corals. What do you guys think? Again, thanks!

Im using a tripod. Im also Zoominh in all the way, but the auto focus doesnt focus on tye object. It keeps hunting. Also, when i zoom out and i am able to focus on the coral, i am not able to take picture. Im not sure hot to explain it, but when i press down on the shutter the camera does not take the picture. Instead a green light shows up.

Update: Well Im sure its my photographic skills, but pictures are coming out horrible. :( I have my iso set at 100 with f8 and f11 and played with the auto balance for almost an hour and could not for the life of me get a decent picture. All of the pictures were blurry and did not show the real colors of the corals. Any more advice? Thanks

Thanks everyone! I will have to buy a tripod first! One more thing, should I purchase a flash and filter? or that's not really necessary? Thanks!

Hello every, I am pretty much a beginner with photography. I was hoping someone can help me in regards to how to take pictures of flourescent lighting without the heavy exposure of lighting in the picture. I have a reef tank and I would like to take pictures of my corals and fish. I want to be able show the corals under led light. My problem is that I have no idea on how to do it. i have a k-30 with an 18-135mm. I was also thinking of investing in the 100mm macro or the 70-200 macro tamron. Any help and advise will be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hello everyone!

I took this picture while in Disney watching the lion king show and I just wanted to share it with you guys and provide feedback. I wish I could tell you the ISO and shutter speed I used, but I am relatively new to photography and I have no idea what I used. I was just playing with the camera and this came out. :lol: Thanks.

One question, should I update the firmware in my camera or is not really necessary?

Thanks

Hello everyone!

I'm vivas! from miami! I'm brand new to the world of dslr's, but always had an interest in them. My girlfriend bought me a k-30 for my birthday which I'm really happy about. I hope I can get advice from this forum and really start my camera without auto mode. :)
