Just for fun I took my underwater camera that I purchased a few years back to the pool this summer. I am not there yet doing it professionally but did have a great time. Despite my own feelings about actually getting in the water I went in and snapped some fun pictures of my son and the boys he had been playing with.
At first they were not too sure but eventually got into it! My son was the hardest because he hates going under water. Maybe not hate but fearful so at the end he decided he would try. With his eyes and nose covered and hands over his ears he took a deep breath and went under. Whoooh! I am glad I got the shot! I didn't think anything of it until I got home and posted it online for family to see but then I realized just how beautiful it was!
Not just his flowing hair and the pretty blue water around him but it was a special moment of bravery for him and that image showed just how he is and all his quirkiness! Yep, now it's going on the wall as a gorgeous Metal print and he is so proud when he looks at the image. So what do you think? Was this just a rare moment or the next new thing in portrait photography? Gosh, wouldn't it be awesome to have your next family session under water in this Texas heat?
