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.
More to come, the summer has just begun.
