Photo Tip: Kelsey Finn

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!

A tip for the underwater models out there. To be truly successful, especially when having your portrait taken underwater, you need to hold your breath – without looking like you’re holding your breath. The best way to achieve this is by practicing holding your breath and get comfortable being underwater!

As with taking photos on land, if you are shooting with natural light and want your subject lit well and not as a silhouette, make sure the sun is behind you! But, if the sun is not at a lower angle closer to the horizon, ask your model to look up to the surface to have the sun light up their face!
