Hi all, been lurking and first time posting. I am not proficient with photography and only use my trusty phone for picture taking. I see in forums things like blue or yellow filter on the picture taken. How are these filters applied?

Also to add on, how do you adjust the phone cam to take true colours of what's inside the tank as most of the time it is always blue due to the light.

I do the following when taking pics with an iphone

To capture the fluorescence of LPS :

  • Best taken with yellow filter. Favorite lens is DD Coral Lens Gen2 for use with mobile phone
  • Lighting : Use blue light only. In my case, with AI Hydra64, turn on Blue & Royal Blue to about 30-50%.  
  • No ambient light as this will mess up the yellow filter. So best to take the pics at night with the room lights off (only have tank blue light)
  • That's it. Then just take pics

To capture colors of non fluorescent SPS :

  • About 10-14k lighting temperature (i.e. more whitish light setting)
  • Ambient light is OK.
  • No yellow filter when taking pics during the day time

Thank you very much. That is helpful.
