Hey everybody...Barb here. Well summer is in full swing and folks are enjoying all of the fun that summer has to offer; swimming pools, picnics, cook-outs, beach parties, fireworks. And I am sure there is a lot of picture taking going on as well. If you’re like me, you want to be right in on all the action. Here is something I do when I am going to be taking photos around water...Rather than taking a risk of damaging my good camera, I purchase several disposable waterproof cameras.  This way, I get to be part of the water fun without worrying about splashes or waves. The cameras float too, so they are really fun for pool parties. You can just throw them in the water and the guests can snap shots, even underwater! And the quality of the photos is great. Here is a layout I created using photos from our day at the beach. I was right in the water too! I was able to capture shots of our girls really enjoying themselves!
