Something I did not see here, and might be advantageous to taking coral shots and FTS's. Use your timer, and if your camera is capable, a remote control. This, when used with a tripod, can eliminate unwanted shake that we can cause when taking pics. Even the slightest movement from pushing the shutter button can cause this unwanted blur.

Great thread!!

You have done a good job on this, Jeremai. It will help people very much. I learned a few things from this, as well. :)

point is that before you post you should figure out what the ethos of the thread is. you tweens come in like a herd of horny goats humping every thread in sight, then get surprised when people try to beat you with bamboo canes.

I always have a hard time making my FTS look "sharp." The edges of all the inhabitants are always too soft. It seems like those have the same issues, so maybe this is just something I'll have to accept and move on.

Excellent Job :D
What lighting works best for "certain" shots? I see some are under full daylight and some under actinics?
Thanks so much!!
