Hey Michael! Man I need to apologize to ya. I completely forgot about the icefishing outing. I had to leave town and left the phone at home! Sorry friend! I have been so busy with school and work but, it is starting to settle down a bit! Stay in touch!

You've inspired me! Yea. Now I need to do some catching and see what kind of pics. I can come up with?

But you know, when the fishing is good, it's hard to slow down and take a bunch of photos. Just need to stop and savor the moment.

I also wanted to ask, If you have any issues with fish colors being muted by using a flash. This happens to me sometimes when photographing Crappie or white bass, because of their silvery color. If I photograph someone holding the fish, I use a flash on sunny days to remove the shadows. Especially if they are wearing a hat-for example.

I try to lessen the effects by staying further away from the fish and using the zoom more. I prefer to keep the detail in the fish, and brighten the image later, if possible?

Any suggestions, based on your experience?

Thanks again,
Greg

Michael,
Thanks for the info. I really like the different angles, unique set-up's, and use of backgrounds in your shots!

I have a high-end Nikon point and shoot, with a computer chip that has a lot of different pre-sets for different situations. It has tremendous resolution, but more features than I need. Great photos like yours are all in the creativity of the photographer.

Keep the pics coming!

Best,
Greg

Mike, I made a mistake using another member's name when I meant to use yours. I was trying to tell John Sheehan about putting 2 spikes on a teardrop which I noticed that we share in common. Anyway, just letting you know. How's fishing been over there in MN??

that pic of the sliced gill reminds me of one i cought. it got hooked right through up through the skull. (i think through the brain im not sure) but the top of its head got riped open about an inch and a halph long. felt bad for it. it was alive when i put it back in.
