Gary Parr's Bio
How’d You Shoot That?
Your reef is thriving, the colors are beautiful, and you want some photos to share the fruits of your labor with friends and family. You break out the camera, fire off a few shots, and end up with blue, blurred, and distorted photos, half of which are ruined when the light from your flash unit reflected off of the aquarium glass. Frustration sets in and you ask the inevitable question:
How do I get decent shots of my reef?
"How’d You Shoot That?" will show you what equipment you need and don't need, how to get the proper exposure, and what makes for good photo composition. You'll also learn how to photograph fish, get quality full-tank shots, and shoot corals, all of the way down to the feeding tentacles.
“How’d You Shoot That?” is presented by Gary Parr, a self-taught advanced-amateur photographer who "specializes" in close-up/macro photography of corals, flowers, and insects. To see some of his photography, browse the galleries at www.gparr.com
. Gary has been keeping reef aquariums for more than 15 years and co-hosts, with Christine Williams, the weekly Reef Threads podcast at www.reefthreads.com
