    Ok, I'm new at the picture taking so here is what I'm trying to figure out. What is the best way to capture the true color of some of the corals? Some corals take better pictures than others with or with out a flash. Then other variables screw up the pic I guess due to the white balance? Look at these 2 pics:

    The first is with no flash and the Halides are off now so it is full Actinic lighting, but if I hit it with the flash it browns out. Now this guy is the same color as a Milwaulkee ph meter and that shows in the first pic but the background gets overwelmed by the Actinic. I've got other pics that make fish look like I photoshoped them in due to the way the light responds to the picture. So what is the best way to take pis in a heavy actinic setting? I borrowed a Nikon D70 SLR for these pics.

    Sometimes I get luckey:
