WHAT DOES THE WHITE BALANCE HAVE TO DO WITH THE IMAGES?
These pictures were taken with Sally Jo's Sony DSC-70 and the only difference was that on some of them she set the white balance to OUTDOOR and on others she set the white balance to INDOOR. I will write more about using WHITE BALANCE and how to set it if your camera offers this option. There are several things that determine the final color of the finished image. The image will have a completely different look if you turn on one half of the lights, and you can change the image by raising the hood part way.
The most important thing is that you try to depict the corals as close to their natural color as possible. Garf has had hundreds of visitors and it has been extremely important that we show the true color of our corals. Dozens of Reef Hobby professionals visit our Foundation and most of them have told us that the coral images can not capture the beauty and the bright colors they see in Sally Jo's reefs.
FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS WE HAVE WORKED VERY HARD TO PURCHASE, TRADE, AND SAVE AS MANY TYPES OF CORALS AS WE CAN.
We are having a special on all of the coral cuttings. WHEN YOU PURCHASE 5 AT THE REGULAR PRICE OF $100 WE WILL GIVE YOU TWO FREE CORALS!. We will continue to provide the most current data on reef farming for both education and profit.
The GARF staff knows that each aquarium is different and they will ask about the size, lighting, and age of your reef. Summer is the most important time to add extra janitorstm because there is more light and the reef will be a bit warmer. When you order any Reef Janitor pactm you can pick a free coral or two pounds of GARF's FAMOUS GRUNGE LIVE SAND ACTIVATOR Reef Janitors tm or call toll free 800-600-6163.
