How I Got the Shot: Maelstrom

For several years I have wanted to capture the stunning interplay and effect of water and hair when a person submerged and then the head is flicked back “violently” as they jump and clear the surface.

My grand-daughter Isabelle (9) was the perfect candidate as she has long thick hair down to the middle of her back. She also loves water and plays in our pool for hours. So on New Year’s Day I finally convinced her to let me take some photos to this end.
