I adored Jacky from the minute I read his first email. First off, no one has made me laugh harder during a senior portrait inquiry email. Second, he let me know that he wanted something really unconventional and unusual - and I'm sure you can guess how I felt about that. Third, he was willing to be my guinea pig for my first underwater shoot ever! We have a sweet little community pool in Propsect, which is pretty much a foreign concept to me, having just moved from 8,000 feet. A pool? Really - people have those?The following underwater shots were taken at night, so we had to rely on the interior pool lights. My underwater housing bag (I got the intro-level housing since I just wasn't sure if I would really use it) has a flexible tube for the lens area, so that you could theoretically use different lenses with it. With my 50 1.2, I normally have to squash down the lens compartment since that lens is so short... but I thought it would look cool and sort of submarine window-y if I didn't, so what you're seeing around the edges is the inside of my underwater lens compartment:
Love Prospect's rainbow pool chairs!
Jacky -thanks for being such a fun person & a bright spot in my summer. You're awesome!
