Allison Wagner Chromes at Koret II

So some of the lessons learned from this shoot were:

  • No black / blue swimsuit, it blended out in the dark shots.
  • Swimmer got cold between takes, so provide hot drinks, robe, or keep swimming
  • Air supply would have been good, so next shoot going to organize a small scuba Pony tank.
  • Bracket f stop and stop one / two stops above coupling range.
  • Make sure flash was recharged between shots.
    • I did a few shots with B (bulb setting) with the flash, these turned out to be pretty interesting, but given air and a "tripod" and possibly multiple flashes in a dark ( nighttime ) pool could be really great.

      We also did some 'art' shot of Allison suspended in the water, so these are not part of the four regular strokes.

    Thanks again to Allison, Cathy, Vince and the Koret aquatic center for making this shoot possible. We hope to do another shoot like this again soon and see what we can improve on.
