Yes, I see..........FREAKISHLY large hands....so those will wrap around a basketball like, what, two times!!!!
Thanks for the advice. I'll try getting closer (the smaller the fish, the closer!!) One trick I did pick up last time out was to shut off the flash. Looking at your pictures it would seem that the background makes a difference as well. I am guessing the darker backgrounds help.
I doubt my camera has anything like spot metering capability and if it did, the manual has been gone for a loooonnggg time. This camera is a Kodak DX3500, circa 2002. I take it because it is small and if it were to take a drop in the drink I wouldn't be out much.
Thanks again for the reply. Here's hoping for fish that make even your hands look small!!!
