I HAD to try it. I kept seeing photos in my newsfeed from IN the water… and, having grown up on the beach, this seemed like the absolute best thing ever. So, I rented a “housing” – (a waterproof case) for my camera. I carefully put my camera in the case, checked all the latches & seals and then…. threw it in the pool. I only freaked out a little. Once I got over the initial shock of seeing my camera swimming, it was SO COOL. Like, so cool to the point that I need to book many many more sessions to now be able to purchase one of these housings -because I could do this underwater thing ALL DAY.
Granted, since this was a first try for me, I was practicing on my own kids (and the neighbor kids who’s pool it is), who admittedly don’t take direction from me all that famously. So this is less of a portrait session and more of a lifestyle / documentary approach and I LOVE it.
You want this for your family. I know you do. Heading to the beach? Take me. I’ll rent this housing again in a hearbeat.
Let’s go make some summertime magic!
