Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
To add movement in a photo, I previously suggested using a long skirt or a sarong. This time, I challenge you to use props from the natural environment. For example, sand can create a really cool effect in a photo. Have your model scoop as much sand as possible in their hands and twirl it around playfully.

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
One thing I really hate in some of my photos is when I accidentally cut off my model’s arm or leg. This can create an awkward look to the photo. So I suggest shooting with a wide angle lens and taking your photos from further away. Eventually you will be comfortable with your camera and intuitively know how close or far you need to be to ensure your model is entirely within the frame.

When taking photos of a person underwater, tell your model not to hold back on expressiveness! Sometimes they may feel goofy doing a certain pose, but the more exaggerated the motion, the more dramatic the photo will turn out.

Whenever I go out for the day with my camera gear, my favorite item I will never leave behind is a good lens cloth. It is really easy to get a small piece of dust or a smear on your port, and there is no fixing it once you are in the water! I have had some days where I took an awesome photo, only to discover a blurry lines in the middle. The disappointment could have been prevented if I had cleaned my port and lens thoroughly before jumping in the ocean.  So be sure to clean off your camera lens, your port – INSIDE and OUT!
