My daughter Sarah showed me a snap that her friend took of her doing a wet hair flick and I thought what a great idea. Around fifty attempts later on a balmy summers evening at Somers beach, I finally got the shot I wanted, it nearly killed her…..oh well the sacrifices I have to make.
I shot this on my Canon 30D, I just could not risk my new 5D MK11 in chest deep water.
