My Photography - Gold Fish
June 14, 2017 12:16pm CST
Last night my mom was switching the fish in her fish tanks. She put the goldfish in the big 50-gallon tank since they will continue to grow. She put the little neons in the little 10 or 20-gallon tank since they stay little. She had them in the big round white ice cream containers so I decided to take some photos of them. The white in they were in made a great reflector and made the photos really clear and well lit. I took several but I only liked how two of them turned out. This is the first one. It will take me a while to get the second posted because I have to relearn how to take things out of the background so I can remove the other fish's tail. I am sure I will get it done tomorrow since I have nothing to do on Thursday.

That is an awesome shot.. I always take plenty of picture of my subject and when going through them always seem to just find one or two that really stand out to me. on very rare occasions I get a good subject and good lighting etc and they all turn out pretty good.. I had that with a few subjects, a chipmunk, a Woodchuck , A Great Blue Heron (with my old camera.. which If I had my new one would have turned out way better) And I had another session with a squirrel that I liked too.. I have taken a few with people and they have come out pretty good too., I just don't tend to hang out with them as much.. lol if you hit the right arrow button on the pic.. you can see the rest of the shots i was able to get of this adorable chipmunk

Those photos are very lovely. I love the one of the Chipmunk. I can't wait to get my new lens so I can take better close up photos. How does that website work for you with selling your photos? I am looking to find a way to earn some more money and I have tons of photos.

@CaseyRoss9966 I just joined almost a year now.. and I have sold one photo so far. It takes a while for them to review your photos and make them publicly for sale, and they pick the best ones and they are also offered for sale through Getty Images. I would say it's a great place to start. They community is really cool and they offer lots of tips etc. for picture taking and for making money with your pics. They pay thru paypal and you don't have to have a minimum amount.
