Well, it went better than I expected.

I wish I would've had all the gear that was recommended, but the reality is I had to work with what I had, and it worked well. The client is extremely happy, and even included an additional $100.00 when he wrote the check.

Here's a better shot of the tank with some ugly guy photo-bombing for a selfie :-P

No, this wasn't the light I had for the actual shoot. I'm still editing those. For the purposes of scale, I'm 6'2". This is a 700 gallon tank, shipping to Saudi Arabia next week:

That looks nice in that image. If this is for the builder, for marketing his product, I would think this would be a great spot to say, "frame one with missing side walls for lighting options." McDonalds doesn't photograph the stuff they sell, or at least not as it would be assembled to serve, they sculpt those things for the product shot at the time with half a side built up. No reason to not do the same for this, unless they are one offs.

They are exactly that. Every aquarium he builds is fully custom. The one in this photo is priced at $60,000...
