    Default Macro Photographer? One is needed!

    Hi folks.... I have a one time special need for some macro photos of my tank. My D50 and I do OK on larger tank shots, but not very well on the macro photos like I see out here.

    If anyone is looking to test a new lens or new camera on a tank, I am volunteering my tank as a subject! I also will let you test some Bell's HopSlam or whatever else is hanging around in the cooler. And maybe test some frags too. Thx!
    Detroit's oldest large LED tank! Est'd Jan 2005, went LED June 2009. 6' wide 130g reef, Sunbrite T10 LED tubes (3xGen 3 and 1xGen 1), mostly SPS, but chalices, other LPS, and a few softies too.

    what post processing are you using, sometimes you can crop in close and get good results. northville is kinda far for me once we break into the bells.

    LOL yes, especially Hopslam (10% alcohol).

    I have Photoshop Elements.

    Pat,
    If I were closer, I'd stop in and do the shoot for you.

    I'd offer to help out - but I don't have a macro lens that would be effective shooting a tank the size of yours.

    plus you'd get to keep your nasty hopslam :P
