When a client asked for professional family photograph portraits of their four grandchildren, I asked them about the look of finished portraits they most wanted. The grandparents wanted the personalities of the children to shine through; of them being photographed in familiar surroundings, being themselves. I feel I made the brief :)
We agreed to shoot in the morning and I photographed the children inside the home and outside - in the pool.
So this is how I ended up in pool too. I had to get down to their level (in the water) to capture the next two images...
And then, in order to FREEEZE the water, I remained with camera, in the pool while one of the girls had a serious kicking fit; with great fun effect :)
So, when you take photographs, change the angles of your stance - be aware whether you're shooting from above, below, or at level.
Thanks kids - this was cool and great fun!
