A very special thanks to
for assisting us on the day, couldn't have done it without your help so thank you so so much!!
Ever since Ponyo came out I knew
and I would do it someday... adding to the Ghibli collection huhuhuhu :3 and I had always wanted to try out an underwater shoot! I think Anita was actually starting to get annoyed at how many times I harped on about doing this shoot hahaha
Straw said she would be interested in shooting us as she had bought a waterproof camera bag and wanted to try it out. The so-called "waterproof" bag didnt actually turn out to be as waterproof as we would have liked OTL.. and half way through the shoot some water leaked into the battery compartment of the camera and IT STOPPED WORKING OMG OMG D:
But after an hour or two of drying out in the sun the camera seemed to be fine THANK GOD!! But we didn't want to risk it happening again so we stopped the shoot, so we only got half of the photos we wanted to get. Which means - yep you guessed it - RESHOOT
We'll definitely be doing this again in December, and with professional waterproof gear next time. Just got to wait for the weather to warm up, last time it was a beautiful sunny day but the pool we were using turned out not to have any sort of heating system at all, so the water was freezing and some of us got sick
next time I'll prob do it in my own pool though, easier to get to than Killara and it's solar heated.
More pictures to come
(when I can get off my lazy arse LOL)
