doggy paddle with noodle
rolling in a circle. he was so excited. he kept saying, "watch me auntie jen!" then he'd go underwater and flip in a circle.
swimming like a seal!
I love this picture!
grace relaxing with her noodle crossing her legs. she's been crossing her legs like that since she was 1.
Grace took a picture of me doing a handstand.
A couple things I learned during my first crack at underwater photography. I bought a waterproof camera case for my Canon Powershot. It's good up to about 10 feet.
- Subject should be closer rather than farther away.
- Make sure you go under water before the kid does. Easy to prepare for them.
- Make sure to set camera to underwater setting, then you don't have to mess with the camera. It's best to just be able to click away.
- Try different things. You underwater while they are above water. Them underwater while you are above water. Half underwater/half above water. Give them the camera. Take a picture of yourself underwater.
- It's hard to get very quick movement. Better pictures when they aren't moving much.
- So much fun not to have to worry about getting the camera wet.
- Hold your breath instead of blow bubbles out of your nose while underwater. Easier to see that way.
