DETAquarium Posted December 2, 2015 Report Share Posted December 2, 2015 Hey ShrimpSpot! So I am venturing to the world of photography, though I have taken many decent macro shots with an iPhone I really wanted to step it up a bit. I purchased my first DSLR- Canon Rebel SL1 which came with the standard 18-55mm lens. I have read a ton on Aperture, ISO, and Shutter Speed and the importance of controlling the amount of light per shot taken. As I continue to learn and practice I prefer it be on the right path. Our family photographer recommended me purchasing for my first macro lens a Canon 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro lens. Unfortunately she isn't to familiar with our shrimp hobby and taking pictures through aquariums. All that being said I need your input on hardware such as a macro lens, external flash, and accessories you use to help formulate a stunning shrimp picture. Please post what hardware has worked for you, maybe a sample of a picture, and any "beginner" tips for me. I really appreciate all of you!
