Default Photographers

Hello

How many of us here are photographers by profession or are semi pros from taking photos of family?

Anyway. Took my Alpha 7 II out the other day to take some photos but had major banding under whatever lighting the aquarium was lit with. Anyone come across this before?

Titus

Iíve dabbled in photography Iím not great at it but I do know what you mean and I got that banding issue when I took shots of my tank under fluorescent lights never really got rid of it but did my best to diffuse the light from the fluorescent lights. Havenít had that issue since I went to LED lights

Might be your issue might not be

Titus, try out an underwater camera...mine managed to filter out the blue light from the LEDs the second I put it under water. So maybe that will help with your problem too.

Also I heard of these lenses that clip onto either your camera or the aquarium glass that filter out certain light frequencies to help capturing a more realistic image. Something to look into as well.

I would need to see what effect you are getting... can you post a photo?

What are you using for a camera.. I have got decent photos of my tank with many different cameras..

Believe it has to do with the frequency. If I adjusted my shutter speed that should be able to get rid of the problem but I haven't tried. Out of curiosity what do you shoot aside from aquarium?

Okay sure but I want to take a picture with a good lens. Once I tried good lens there is no way I'm going back.

I have taken numerous shots of my cats (almost at crazy cat person status) and have shot nature in my back yard Iím not great at it and make a lot of mistakes but as the saying goes practise makes perfect. I find nature and cat shots easier to take though as either is as finicky or as frustrating as shooting through water and glass to get a shot

The only time I have ever had that happen is with film on old school tv's... try a different shutter speed, or a diferent aperture... that should sort the problem.

Definitely yes practice makes perfect. I was thinking of getting a mannequin head to practice with.

In comparison with chasing kids around, or trying to get the kids to stay still or look at a specific direction, it's a lot simpler shooting tanks.
