Simple instructions on how to photograph fish:
Any type of camera can be used for documentation, including a mobile phone.
For the actual photo shoot, we recommend following a few basic rules:
- We photograph as much as possible perpendicular to the fish lying on its side, so that the head and tail of the fish are at the same distance from the camera lens.
- When photographing a fish in the hand, we try to hold the fish so that we do not obscure important identifying features (especially the fins).
- To try straighten the fins so that the hand interferes as little as possible with the photograph.
