    Video two in the series, covers what baseline settings to use to get you in the ballpark for taking good shots, then a detailed explanation of how shutter speed, aperture and ISO will affect the picture in both a good and bad way.

    Great Video!!
    How about next, a video covering how to shoot under blue lights (usually at the end of a light cycle) when all your coral colours are really popping?
    I find it fairly difficult but doable. Getting the white balance correct, even in post processing can be hard.

    Damn nice videos Sam, I have a 7D too so I understand what I paid $300 and didn't get from Canon. The guy was speaking like I had a damn degree in engineering and photography, it was horrible.

    If you can
    If you can't get a steady shot, you have a Tripod lying around somewhere.

    I made a monopod that works a treat too, really fixes some of the fuzzies when you're shooting macro shots. When I shoot top down for coral sales I use it a lot.
