Clear Pictures of Moving Fishies


Recommended Posts

After replying to another post, I wanted to share one way I get clear(er) pictures of moving fishies with my camera phone. It's simple really.

1) take a video of the fish
2) scroll through video for a clear frame
3) screenshot it and crop

My rosy barb picture, captured using the method above...he's a long-fin, right? At least I think he is, the fins seem longer than other rosy barbs I've seen.

Strong lighting allows a fast shutter speed which cuts down on the blurring. Also moving the camera along with the direction the fish is swimming can help.

But probably the number 1 thing is patience, just keep taking photos until you get one you like.
