How to shoot Lou Han Fish in fish tank?
My mum request me to take pictures of her Luo Han fish in a fish tank. My set up as below:
Manfrotto 055pro tripod
Giottos Ball head
Can i just use Fill Flash to capture the image? I am afraid there will be reflections which will ruin the picture. I dun have a sync cord for my SB-80dx.
I am also thinking of using Infra Red sync between my built-in flash and SB-80dx. As both flashes will go off at the same time, i am thinking of taping my built-in flash with black tape to prevent it from reflections wheres my SB-80dx will be put on top of the fish tank. Will this work?

Usually for taking fish in aquarium, I do not use flash...instead use slower shutter with AFC..If u are shooting film it will be damn difficult cos the motion of the Louhan is hard to control and predict...u may want to cover up ur back when u are taking the tank...reflections will show through...furthermore I will utilise Polariser filter to get a better shot through the glass...
u may read up more in Arowana Club Forums or the Arofanatics Forum where I frequent - so as to read up those dummy guide to fish photography
