Photo Tip: Kelsey Finn

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Don’t be afraid to move around in the water as the photographer! When I started out taking photos underwater, I realized I was staying in one place, trying to get the exact shot I had in mind. I would then be disappointed if the photo wasn’t exactly what I had envisioned. I now realize if I move around constantly rotating around my subject to shoot at multiple angles, I am far more satisfied with the outcome.

Yeah, avocados have a bad rep for having a lot of calories, but, I though I’d shed some light on why those calories are well worth it.

Avocados help with: Oral cancer defense, breast cancer prevention, eye health, lowers cholesterol, heart health, stroke prevention, a source of glutathione, and are a Vitamin E powerhouse. They make a great hair mask, also make a hydrating face mask, and they are a great way to add healthy fat almost any recipe.

…and most of all.. they make guacamole.

So, say it loud and proud with me…AVOCADOS ARE AWESOME!
