Hi gang,

Sorry this isn't a post about glamour but you guys are the best and so I'm going to ask here. I will be photographing a swim team, individuals and team shots, and we are doing the shots by the indoor pool. My question: Has anyone shot in a pool area before and how would you recommend I light the shots?

I'm leary about bringing my strobes and power supply near the pool for obvious reasons and so may be resigned to using my flash on a bracket. However, I don't want the photos to look like snapshots and the color balance will be all retarded for sure.

Your input would be highly valued! Thanks and my best to all!

Mike

I've seen the same thing done at the gym I go to.
The photog was using a single strobe(1600White lightening I think) with a brolly box on it.
Our gyms pool has a railing around it, so in this case you could place a strap
of sorts to limit how close the light can get to the water even if tipped over.
More than likely if the pool has any electrical outlets they will be GFCI outlets, that will protect the swimmer, but your lights wont be so lucky.
An assistant would be ideal.
If using a strobe I would also recommend being wireless, to limit any hazards.
Also if you can, drag your shutter to bring in the bg, this will help to avoid the snapshot look. Not sure what filter to use on the strobe to balance it to the ambient light color temp though.

Good luck
