    Nicole — nice tip for using a diffuser for desktop photography. I am one of thousands of people who raise tropical fish as a hobby and are interested in shooting images of fish in their tanks. While it is akin to various aspects of desktop photography there are some challenging aspects to shooting into the tank i.e. movement and lighting to name just a couple. Have you ever worked in that area? I know you live in Portland and there is a wonderful place called The Wet Spot with thousands of brightly colored fish just waiting to have their images captured. Again, thanks for sharing your Tips with us.

    Hi Bill, I don’t have any fish and so I don’t really do much of that type of photography. And I’ve been to the store you mentioned, but the irony is that they don’t allow photography. :) I did however find this tutorial online that you may find useful: http://fish-etc.com/knowledge/how-to-photograph-your-fish-and-tank-part-1
