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.)

Bubbles
Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Get creative by adding movement and texture to photos. For example, I had an image in my mind I wanted to bring to life – a girl swimming in deep blues but all you can really see is her silhouette. But when I took the photo, it seemed like it was lacking something. I decided I needed some texture to really make the photo great. I convinced 2 friends to swim down 30 feet, lay on the ocean floor, and then blow out all their air. This created a mass of bubbles my model could swim through, and the photo came out better than I could have imagined! So don’t be afraid to think out of the box!
