Underwater World | Capturing Life | Hawkesbury Family Photographer

It's been so hot here in Sydney that the girls and I have been spending as much time in my Mum's pool as we can. My sister has a GoPro Hero 5 and she let me borrow it one of those hot days to take some photos. Since then I've also used it to do some filming, but I've not had a chance to put that film together just yet, but stayed tuned!

UPDATE: I've finished the film! Kepp scrolling to watch it, it's one of my favourite films to date!

Underwater photography is much harder than it looks, but it's also a lot of fun! I took quite a few images on my first try, getting used to how the camera worked and checking out the difference water makes to colours, etc. But overall I managed to get quite a few keepers, and I'd like to share them with you today. I love how the water & the wide angle of the lens makes the girls look so graceful.

These photos were not just taken for the novelty of it, but because I really wanted to take some summer photos that were representative of this time in our lives. Zee starts school in 2019, and I know this time next year I'm going to be a bundle of nerves. So I really want to remember Zee's last real carefree summer, and to document it fully I needed to shoot in the pool...
