I have the same problem, Tried two different cameras and my wife's cell phone but the pictures never do the subject justice. I must have taken over 100 pictures trying to get a decent one of my sunken forest tank as for fish -forget it. I am lucky to get one or two good ones out of 100. The only fish so far that turned out looking alright was my red tailed fancy guppy. I swear he likes to have his picture taken :fish:

My iPad (the one I use on TFF all the time) takes fairly good photos:

Here is what my old profile picture used to be:

Not bragging or anything, but here are some more good pictures I’ve got:

My good camera takes better close ups. My GoPro takes good slow motion and action shots, not so much close ups. :)

My camera skills are trash but here they are.
Did you get those pictures at an actual reef?

I would love to go to a reef and scuba dive. That way I could take pictures with my GoPro Hero 6. Unfortunately, I live in Kentucky, which is landlocked. :(

A couple tips I got from AKA people were : take lots of pictures , dozens and dozens. Another tip was to give them a heavy feeding and take pictures a couple hors later when they are sitting around still letting their meal settle.
