Our swim coach asked me to take pictures of our swimmers doing flip turns. The club is doing a flip-turn workshop - and she wants a photo to use on the brochure. The lighting was actually pretty poor - so it was hard to stop the action. But even had I been able to stop the action better - it turns out (no pun intended) - it is hard to show a flip-turn on a still photo - since it's a very dynamic process. Also - most of the action occurs under the water - which is also hard to capture from above. So I used Photoshop to create a composite (see the last photo) to try to indicate the motion. I'm not sure how successful I was.
