Hi Bops/Steve,

I guess you took that picture Steve.... is it under exposed or were you guys catching fish that early in the morning? Action usually starts as soon as the first rays of the early morning sun hit the water.

Regards,
Mighty Marlin.

Nikon user so tends to underexpose a touch, and was shot very early.
I usually shoot in aperture priority with an 18-35mm lens, probably shot on f:8 possibly f:5.6. As I recall, it was February so pretty cold as well.

Hi Steve,
I could do with some tips on aparture settings on my Pentax SLR. I still use it in auto mode for fear of screwing up fishing pictures. :oops:

Owen

Been away for a few days, so in reply to Owen's question about apertures etc.
I tend to shoot on aperture priority and like to select f8 whenever possible. That is a fairly general kind of setting giving reasonable depth to the shot and a fast enough shutter speed to hand hold the camera.
Check the reading on the camera is giving a shutter speed faster than the focal length of your lens, ie if the lens is a 35mm, you need a shutter speed of 1/40th or more to avoid camera shake. With long lenses like a 300mm, then shutter speeds have to be very fast, more like 1/500th to be really safe. If you brace yourself against your knee, or a tree, you can get a steadier shot, perhaps 1/250th of a second with a 300mm lens.
Sometimes I'll shoot fully manual. Take a reading from a bit of green grass near to the subject and go with what your meter tells you. That way, the camera will not give a dodgy exposure based on various other bits of light and shade around the subject.

I have been toying with the idea of running photo lectures and field trips as part of a portfolio of tours for both UK and Indian tourists. Perhaps I need to explore this further.
They were to take place around Nagarhole and be based at Kings Sanctuary. Do you think people would take part?

Just re-read your question.
Other things, which are specific to angling shots are:
Fast movement from a fish may have to be frozen, therefore you need a shutter speed above 1/250th, preferably up to 1/500th. It may be that you need to select an aperture to achieve that. Stopping down to f5.6 may give a fast enough shutter speed, but make sure the subject doesn't hold the fish out towards the camera, or something will be out of focus!
A bit of flash will help to up the shutter speeds and can help to remove shadows on sunny days.

Do you shoot film or digi?

Hope no-one minds the thread heading down this route?

Many thanks Steve, i feel a little wiser now.
Developing costs being what they are, I shoot film and wish it were digi :cry:
I understand from some of the Wasi blokes, that occasionally there are classes organized by some of the photo studios over here. Being a working bloke, scratching around to find time to fish, i would never be able to make time to attend one of these sessions.
Your idea would need some ground baiting to see if it would work :wink:
Thanks Again
Owen

Lonavala & Khandala is probably where you could tempt these types.
