Last pic of my copperband butterfly who is quite healthy and loves mysis shrimp and my home made "mush" and picks at an aiptasia from time to time. Most of my aiptasia is gone now thanks to the butterfly and 3 peppermint shrimp!:dance:
johnny, unfortunatley i have only ever used olympus camera's. never played with a nikon.
but i'm sure it must have some iso settings, or at minimum flash and white balance.
just play with them and try different settings. like daylight, flourescent light, incandescant light, etc...
BUT, only with play with ONE setting at a time!
i'm not sure of all the settings on the nikon, but i know it has good features.
fwiw, i'm no "photographer" i know pretty much sqaut about my camera's. i get great pics, but i jsut play with settings, until i find one i like. but i really dont know what all the settings actually mean
you'd think after 8 years i would have learned, but nope. i jsut play and tinker with them! :funny:
Just keep taking pics..I use a tripod, macro mode and no flash..Put the camera in auto mode then -macro mode- zoom in and out till the pic looks good and the flower on the screen turns yellow..Good Luck
The basic photography course I took means that I know what all the settings mean and what they do, but it's still hit and miss when it comes to the 'perfect' shot
That's the best thing about a digical - it doesn't cost you anything to shoot hundreds of pics to get the one you want.
You should be able to get rid of the flash in "auto" by hitting a button somewhere on your camera. It looks like a thunderbolt -the camera will adjust the other settings to try to compensate for it. On my camera, in review mode, if I hit the display button twice, all the settings show up on the screen so I know what the camera did. Might give you some hints.
I use white balance in "cloudy" mode if I'm not using the flash, it seems to give me the truest color for my tank. Yours might be set in 'tungsten' mode (image of a lightbulb)- that one always makes my pics look yellow.
