Your Shot Photo of a Month: Freeze Frame

July 3, 2015 - photo frame

Summer is as passing as a sharpened star, so constraint family memories as they happen—such as this picture submitted to National Geographic’s Your Shot community by California mom Genny Salamon.

Getting a shot: Salamon and her family were enjoying a swimming pool during her parents’ Los Angeles home. “I beheld that when my son Cas fell in, a H2O would pierce out around him, like a glass crater,” says Salamon, a part-time attorney, “and we wanted to constraint that impulse of impact. To keep a sum of a splash, we manually set a orifice so a shot would be underexposed. To me, this shows Cas amatory each final dump of summer.”

What we liked: “The approach a H2O frames Cas creates an oval mural that focuses courtesy on his clear expression,” records Traveler‘s executive of photography Dan Westergren. “Adding to a kinetic outcome is his hair, that looks like an electrified halo.”

Summer print tips: “Bring a ziplock bag to strengthen your camera from H2O and sand,” Westergren says, “and if we fire in a center of a day, try a polarizing lens to revoke any glare.”
