Welcome to the Photo Gallery Spotlight. Each month we’ll showcase a particularly nice aquarium photograph, taking the time to discuss the identification and husbandry of the animal pictured as well as information relating to the technical details of how the photo was taken. Readers are encouraged to send images (and details on the organisms pictured, as well as the details of how they captured the shot) they would like to submit for possible inclusion in this feature to firstname.lastname@example.org . If your submission is selected for use in the magazine, you will receive an item from the reefs.org or advancedaquarist.com store equal to $25 or less.
This month’s photo is a macro of a tiny 0.75″ Sexy Shrimp ( Thor amboinensis ). The camera used for this photo was a Canon 300D Digital SLR Body. A Canon18-55 Lens was used with a 4X teleconvertor attached. ISO 100, Shutter Speed 1/60, Aperture f/5.6. “
