Contests are coming. But how do you make the best final shot as possible?

Some info about settings, equipment and setup.

What a great review you shared with  us  Nigel. If i may i would add another tip: have at least one pair of extra hands to help. And always shoot in RAW mode and after work with a dedicated software like Adobe Lightroom to ensure that the final result is what your eyes see everyday when watching your aquarium.

Good luck with your ranks this year.

I hope I can help some people out. :)

 

Yeah I always shoot in RAW (forgot to add in video) and do post production in Photoshop. It makes a really big difference. I want to make a video about how to use photoshop to make the final shot perfect but I am scared to make a video of this. I know almost all scapers do post production but generally only cropping is allowed. So if I make a video about it I basically tell I am cheating lol..  Don't get me wrong adding hardscape, plants with photoshop is not done. But changing some contrast and adding sharpness really helps to make the photo to a "wow" factor.

 

Thanks my first time IAPLC :)
