Default More Mpimbwe Pictures

Here are some pictures that I took of my Fronts, playing with the exposure, etc...

These are pictures with no flash and longer exposure times.

I'm not the most happy with the pictures (probably because they are my pictures vs. others pictures) but I really like the poses of the fish.

This also taught my to Clean the Glass Before I Take Pictures!!!!

Very nice compositions Fat B! If you could just get the exposures to render more accurately, then you'd have prime shots for a frontosa calendar. Hey! There's an idea!

By the way, I agree with Fanman. I want to see a full tank shot. I've asked you this before. Now are you going to comply, or am I gonna have to come over there?

I've been avoiding you and you caught me!

No, I haven't been avoiding it. I don't have a camera of my own so I borrow the folks when I visit. Then I have to take pictures and download then to my computer at home to burn a cd which I have to take to work to post on the internet because I don't have internet at home. Whew!

BTW, I teach high school social studies, so there is a lot of 'down time'. Before school, after school. Its summer school now so there are a lot of long breaks for me to view Cyphos! 8) )

I was hoping to get better pics but since the pressure is on I'll give ya what I got.

Also, the lighting is one actinic, one 5500k which makes it look blue. I've been struggling with the lighting and flash and all of that, experimenting a little. A leave the flash off and jack up the exposure and they turn out too blue. Neon as Pilgrim calls them. I use a flash and I don't think the blue comes out very well.

Also, the Kodak easyshare camera is a great point and shoot camera but it lacks tons of manual control which I wish I could play with.
