Hi Jason
I see you mentioned using Topaz software. Are you using their `In Focus` and or `Detail 3`?, both are good but due to the amount of control you have it takes a while to balance all the adjustments and get the result you were looking for.

Their noise reduction programme Topaz `DeNoise` can take the edge off image sharpness but detail can be brought back with intelligent use of the sliders

A very quick fix which boosts sharpness in a simple step is the `Smart Sharpen` feature in Photoshop

Some nice work there lads.
Ev - TC's always lose a bit of image quality but they are pretty sharp mate, I think you can probably get rid of more of that noise with some practice.

Got this pair of Wagtails by the garden pond every day now, they are nesting nearby.

That's just how photobucket deals with the image, better to get a flicker account you will not suffer image softening

When I upload to photobucket, pics seem to loose some sharpness, is there a way around this?
Nice ev

My quick release plate attached to a storm pole worked fine, and was left in situ throuought the session.
Appreciate you could with a tripod, felt a bit overdressed.
Had a couple of smaller commons, one of which was very lively and whilst holding the lively fish plus camera remote with thumb and forefinger, can be a bit of a job presenting the fish upright and square too the camera.
So a Yongnuo MC-36/C1 intervalometer is on route.
This will work with yours daffy.

Daffy,

I use the giga t pro remote release (http://www.hahnel.ie/index.cfm?page=dslrremotecontrols&pId=60) which works really well. Can set it either to use as a remote (same as pressing the shutter release) or to take a number of shots at any frequency you like (so one every 2 seconds for 50 shots). The latter is very useful as you can just set it going then go back to the fish and pick it up, turn it round etc. Not the cheapest option but very powerful. You can also use it for time lapse photos, star trails ad load of other photography uses.

Re fill flash there are loads of portrait photography blogs and examples out there. I use a phottix 5 in 1 reflector to help balance out harsh shadows (rather than a flash) which is also worth playing with. I find the flash can reflect too much of the fish (assuming the flash is on the camera) and being outdoors it's often pretty hard to bounce the flash.

Most of all keep snapping!

Matt

Canon 650D
Manual mode pop up the flash, and the flash dictates the exposure
In your quick menu, flash exposure + or - to adjust.
You may be able to save you flash settings in programme mode, not sure.

All well and good behind the camera, but hurried self takes I use automatic settings, then adjust at home.
Canon RC6 remote with rubber band attached to finger?

Search fill in flash then cameralabs
