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! I seized the opportunity to try something new and take photos that were not my typical “style.” So when conditions are not what you expected, don’t fret…embrace the moment as an opportunity to learn something and create photos entirely unexpected.

In the surf movie, Waterman, Gerry Lopez said one of the more profound statements I’ve ever heard…I don’t know what it is exactly word for word, but it basically said “I am getting rich each day, in ways that don’t count at the bank.” That quote has stuck with me for a quite some time. And man oh man is Gerry correct.
Underwater photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Experiment with a weight belt. If you are having trouble diving under the surface and staying down, this can make the world of a difference. (But please remember to be safe and use the proper weight for your body, in addition to practicing in a controlled environment.)
