Ah, springtime in coastal Southern California. The sun is shining, the birds are singing… and the waves are FLAT. With the exception of the one or two rare days we are presented with some late Santa Ana winds and some early south swells, spring is certainly not the season for surf here in the golden state. Unfortunately, for us surf junkies, that means we have to get our exercise in other ways! Luckily, we live in a pretty rad place, so this doesn’t mean our only option for our daily workouts require a gym membership.

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.
