H2O = life

I live for summer, days that I can immerse myself in underwater photography.  Its like entering into another realm, where a calmness surrounds and envelops you in its sanctuary.
I shot Haleigh again, she is fantastic to work with and yes, it is work, even though she makes it look effortless.  Haleigh is a performing artist/model who is aware of her body movement and poses.  Her scuba and free diving experience is a big plus because she is so comfortable underwater.  I rarely have to give direction, except to remind her in the beginning of the shoot to relax her mouth.  Her enthusiasm is matched with her innate desire to create. 
As a scuba diver, she has an underwater housing for her Sony a6000 and she let me shoot with her camera all day.  The a6000 I believe is a step up from the Sony NEX7 which I was interested in getting a few years ago.  Something to consider.
We played around for a few hours with a lunch break and a basking in the sun break after the third wardrobe change.  I had a lot of wonderful images so we called it a day.  I still have raw images to go through but I couldn’t wait to post a few of my favorites.

To change things up a little, I decided to go in for the close-ups.
