Underwater Photography

This past year for Cmas we bought A a new digital camera. She LOVES to take pictures. She also LOVES to swim and be in the water, so we bought a camera that was WATERPROOF! Although it was a bit over our normal Cmas gift budget, it wasn’t too badly priced compared to any other digital camera.

olympus-waterproofWhat can I say… A also really likes PINK. And this baby is REALLY PINK! I was embarassed to even buy it. She’s told me that when she’s performing on stage and I’m video taping w/ her camera, she can actually SEE the camera in the audience from the stage.

This past weekend in Kelowna for B’s vball tourney, we (meaning Hubby, Tt, A + Boo – NOT me) spent some time in the pool and here are some of our most awesome shots! UNDERWATER! How cool is that?!?!

p4180045A view up into Boo’s nose from underwater… EVEN from underwater you can see those eyelashes! Amazing!

p4180080I took this one from the edge of the pool ;-). No, it is not officially bathing suit season yet. I have… 3 more months until I can be expected to be seen in a suit, so just leave it alone.

p4180085An artistic shot from A from below the water… Well, I thought it looked cool anyhow !

Is there no end to the ways we can photograph!?

  1. That looks like so much fun! Underwater cameras, what will they think of next?

  2. I love taking pictures underwater – so much fun.

  3. Tabitha : I KNOW! Lol. Next I’m going to buy a Polaroid, just for some more variety. It’ll keep me amused until I can find some time to learn Photoshop.

  4. K : Me too, as long as I can take them from the side and don’t actually have to be IN the water…

  5. I LOVE these! I had no idea they made cameras like that!
    I would love to play around with one.
    Hmmm, besides my kids (my usual subject) I have photograghed a stray cat, and some flowers. 🙂

  6. Tamara : It’s pretty cool – can’t wait to take it to the beach, although I suppose I should check w/ support on salt-water exposure…
    I know! What’s to take pics of after the kids are all shot at every imaginable angle?? I love taking pics of food, but by no means am a “photographer”. I’ll have to check back at your site for some pic ideas ;-).

  7. That is a great idea! Monkey’s 5th birthday is next weekend, and I know he would love a camera like that… guess it’s time to talk to hubby LOL. Those pictures are great BTW.

  8. Angela : Yep – talk up that Hubby! And do some googling – I bought this one for my 14yr old, but there were lots of really durable looking “kids” cameras online that I think were also waterproof…
