    2. Hi Barry
      The post Christine referenced has my basic explanation to the methods I use. I learned my methods from Brian Zimmerman at Ohio State University(he's essentially Ohios non-game fish biologist).

      1. Thanks - it sounds like a lot of effort but the results are certainly worth it. I try to identify any fish I see, but even finding decent pictures on the internet of freshwater species that aren't dead is very difficult. Yours really set the standard. Any chance you'll be doing European fish? Posted one year ago
        1. I've basically set out on a personal goal of photographing every species I encounter in the wild(that I can legally handle of course), so if I find myself travelling abroad anywhere in Europe, I'll definitely have my photo setup with me! Unfortunately I haven't been abroad since I started photographing fish, but I make it a personal goal to try to get out of the US at least once a year if possible Posted one year ago
          1. Well, I eagerly await your amazing photos! Let me know if you are in Southern Germany. Posted one year ago, modified one year ago
            1. Thank you! I will definitely reach out if I find myself there. I would love to explore Germany some day Posted one year ago

  3. I found a good piece online that goes into a bit of detail, for anyone interested in this type of photography. http://silurus.ansp.org/ACSI/corresp/digital_imaging_tips.html Posted one year ago
