Ditch your fad diets, calorie-counting apps and cleanses, instead trick your body into loving and craving healthy, whole foods. Sounds like a scam, right?

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Sometimes we don’t have access to a crystal clear ocean, so we must improvise! I recently took photos for the first time in an indoor pool. I faced a lot of challenges I had never experienced before. The pool was heavily chlorinated, so the water was cloudy. Usually the clarity of the water isn’t too big of a deal as long as you can make up for it with bright sunlight. Since the pool was indoors, the lighting was extremely poor. I felt defeated. But, I discovered there was a pool light underwater!
