Why would you want to do that ?Sir_BlackhOle said:Is there a way to turn the flash off on this thing in "auto" mode?
Niko,niko said:I personally usually don't see a need to use any flash when photographing a planted tank. Using a flash over a planted tank has some problems which if you want to resolve completely require a cumbersome set up:
Professional or not but if you have $2,000 on 20$ tripod, you are either cheap or like to gamble :wink:My take on the tripod - one could spend $20 for a tripod from Wal Mart and decide if their needs are met. Tripods have become so practical that a difference between a cheap one and an expensive one is nonexistent for someone that does not shoot professionally.
Agree. I always try to take my pictures from 45deg angle with my external flash. I have it setup on tripod and movable plate so I can move entire setup in whichever direction I need. This applies to fish, not really to plants. It all depends how you plant is growing and how tips are positioned.One last but very important note - it's somewhat amusing to realize that we never talk about a very basic and very important thing - the direction of the light used to take the pictures. Yes, the normal shot of a full tank is with the light falling from above. But individual pictures of plants in particular, or a full tank shot often benefit immensely by using frontal light, or rather mix of frontal and top light.
