Day 686 of 365 More.

Ah, refreshing.

Steph and I finally got a chance to use the pool tonight. It was quite nice. Not quite as warm as I like it (I like my pool water to feel warm… almost like the hottub) but it was quite nice anyway, probably just the temperature that most people like it.

Anyway, initially I had intended to do a shot of me floating underwater, but then I got the idea of doing a jumping out of the water shot (as opposed to my cannonballing into it that I did last year). This is what I finally came up with.

Aquaman, eat your heart out!

    @scary jerry girl: It’s all about shutter speed. I actually did a tutorial on how to do it on the 365 Days Podcast, Episode 24, if you want to check it out.

    @mofo: thank you.

    @mickeysacks: well, you’re welcome to use it when you come to visit.

    Chris your last 3 shots have been brilliant….loved them all…The Merman comment above actually had me giggling pretty good. The water being captured here is great and thanks for sharing the tutorial, I’ve downloaded it and will listen later on.

    thank you.

    @Phatso Photography: thank you. I hope you enjoy the tutorial.

    Holy fuck. Nice! And here I thought you hated using the flash.

    @MegaBee: for lighting. I will use it occasionally for fill. Actually, if you check, you’ll see that there are quite a few times I use it for various special effects and stuff. I just don’t make a big deal of it.

    i will not join the topon or topless conversation but the shot is great! wish i can make that shot with a point+shoot. i lucky enough to live near a pool, but i have to pay a membership fee. not worth it. besides, there are so many kids using that pool. impossible to make that kind of shot of just me. It would look more like a seamonster shot then a merman. I haven’t touch the water since I was ten. Meaning I haven’t swim since I came to this country! >_<

    @curlyclare1: thank you.

    @sassyshannon999: you know where I live. You’re welcome anytime, hun.

    @jmven: thanks

    @excalipoor: there’s no reason this couldn’t be done with a point and shoot. Again, take a look at the podcast tutorial and I tell you exactly how to do this sort of thing.

    @` ®© ROBERTO CARBONI: thank you.
