DSS Swimming shoot for 2012 calendar


Down's Syndrome


Graham Miller

Very interesting day Saturday – reflections played havoc with autofocus and then condensation on the lenses due to it being highly humid. At one point I’d cleaned the fish eye five times only to realise the condensation was at the back of the lens and not the front.

Jake very kindly allowed me to borrow an underwater housing.  It was tricky to use and of course there isn’t much light underwater (Thank you Nikon) . An amazing piece of kit though and with a little more practice… I’d hoped for a shallow end but with it being a competition pool it was 2m deep throughout and so I couldn’t steady myself on the bottom and had to tread water between shots. I only used it for 15 mins and the shot below is the one that I was most happy with.

I’ve seen a draft of the calendar and the design looks complete.  Four more shoots and we should be ‘good to go’.  Its nice seeing all this coming together and great to be working with Sarah and Heather at DSS who are making all this happen.
