Photo Tip: Kelsey Finn

Mermaid At The Surface650
Photo Tip of the Week from our newest photo contributor, Kelsey Finn
Don’t be afraid to be trigger happy, ESPECIALLY when taking photos underwater. You never know if you missed the exact moment your subject, background, and lighting are all in sync. Underwater is even more difficult to get the exact shot you imagined – so you cannot afford to wait until you think the moment is right. So hold down that shutter release and shoot away!
[Side tip for the GoPro users – if you’re taking stills, change the setting to “burst” mode to take multiple photos in a row (three is my magical number).]
