Light watts and picture quality

by thisfish884485

I have recently doubled the wattage in my tank(55 gallons 100 watts now). The problem i am having is my crappy camera wont take a good picture because its so bright!!. In the photos everything looks white bright eventhough in person it seems good.Does anyyone have an idea how to take a good pic. I cant adjust the f-stop(apeture) on my camera nor the film speed. Anyone have this problem

Double check and make sure there isn't a way to increase shutter speed...check a manual or something. If you're cam doesn't have that, get a different one. -.-

I rarely get a good picture no matter what I do with my camera and lights. The best pictures I've gotten are of my tanks in the early morning indirect sunlight.

if your camera has a high megapixel, try standing farther back from the tank... less light will naturally reach the lens... then u can zoom in your pic and crop
