Swim

It's hard to get an action-portrait of a swimmer because they are underwater, face down, and when their face is not down it's making some kind of contorted gasp for air.... So.... here is what I got for a feature on Lindsey Martin of Bay City Central. There's the standard Bay City Times portrait shot, then some other shots that I didn't think I pulled off initially, but ended up liking.

I love the lighting in your action shots! Swimming is a tough sport to shoot indoors. Where you using available light or did you set up strobes?
