Amanda's Shrimp Shots

Recommended Posts

I'm currently in the process of cycling two tanks for Caridina shrimp. I have a 20 gallon long that has been through hell and back that still holds my remaining shrimp. I will be transferring these shrimp to the new tank as well as adding some new additions. A few months ago I purchased a macro lens for my iPhone. I've been able to get some great shots. This journal will be devoted to awesome pictures of my shrimp and the new tanks. :)

Here's a few of my favorites: post-1481-0-11748800-1446581750_thumb.jppost-1481-0-81829800-1446581767_thumb.jppost-1481-0-86888300-1446581831_thumb.jppost-1481-0-38673700-1446581857_thumb.jppost-1481-0-41204500-1446581883_thumb.jppost-1481-0-96831800-1446581912_thumb.jppost-1481-0-75157400-1446581939_thumb.jppost-1481-0-11466100-1446582013_thumb.jp

I hope that shadow panda momma rains TB babies everywhere for you.

Great pics Amanda.

Thank you :) unfortunately I lost that shadow panda when I had the month of deaths, but the few TBs I have left look nice :)

yes, my lens is the same; not cool.

Wow what macro lens is this? Mine only lets me take pictures of shrimps that are right by the glass...

The macro lens I use is this one. I can't take pics of anything that isn't an inch or closer to the glass. It takes a lot of time and patience waiting to get a good shot. I still really like the quality of the pictures though. I also have an iPhone 6 which has a pretty good camera so that may make a difference too.post-1481-0-25165300-1446612555_thumb.pn

I tend to put my mosses closer to the glass as well as cholla logs or IAL. Those are always good spots for the shrimp to graze and I'll have better chances of them getting close enough to the glass to get good shots. Also, these things make for great looking and varying backgrounds.

That is a great tip.  Placing layout material the correct distance from the glass so it is in your lens' sweet spot makes getting good shots a lot easier.

Same shrimp, but different sides. My favorite CRS right now. One of her parents was from the PRL colony I used to have and one was from a high grade CRS colony. This is her first berry :)post-1481-0-80581500-1448832719_thumb.jppost-1481-0-17296200-1448832853_thumb.jp
