Now that the weather is all nice and warm up here in Toronto, it's time to get back into the water!
I've had underwater gear for a while now, mostly purchased for shooting sharks and turtles and stuff down in the Caribbean back when I could afford to take decent vacations. :-)
Back here in Canada, while there are great wrecks to dive upon, and to shoot, I thought I would try and build a portfolio based on my adoration of Howard Schatz. His body of work is stunning; it helps that he has a heated, covered pool and can shoot year round. Yes, I'm jealous. :-D
It's always a struggle to find swimming pools to use for these type of shoots; the public ones are pretty much off limits for anything creative, and the private ones are usually out in the burbs.
The pool shoot on Saturday was more in the way of a gear / camera test, making sure that things still worked after a couple of years being dry. No floods! Yay!
Look for some more work in this vein over the summer; it's great to be back in the pool.

The sun refused to come out. :-(
Friday night / Saturday morning was a wild and windy time.
A series of thunderstorms roared through town, with the usual results. Thankfully, the tree didn't fall on MY car. :-) I was parked about five spots south of this.
