Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
For those of you using an underwater housing, ever have trouble with water spots? to get that perfect half-in-half-out photo, without water spots, the best thing to do is use your spit! It sounds gross…but it works! Spit on the housing’s port and give it a good lick to distribute the spit!
