    Waterpark pics (My first post:)

    Hello everyone! I love photography, and even am working at college at a minor in media!


    I am shooting some pics with friends at a water park with a couple of gals. I want to get some sweet awesome shots, posed (2 cute gals in swimsuits) and unposed (like going down a waterside) etc! Any tips on how to get some good shots, and poses because if they are good enough, I will add them to my portfolio. Thanks a lot. I have a D90 and know how to use it pretty well! Thanks

    Its much harder to tell you how to pose someone someone compared to if you post a photo and ask for critique.

    About all I could suggest is head to the local library and grab a book on portrait photography. Or head to the newsagent and buy a Vogue or girly magazine and look through the clothing section, there's plenty of posing in there. For the male equivalent grab a copy of esquire. Try to mimic the results, it will teach you what works and what doesn't.

    My suggestion would be to bring a longer lens if you have one. Something like a 70-200, and try NOT posing them. Stay far enough away so they can't tell when/if your photographing them. Get those candid shots! Always be prepared for a "wardrobe malfunction" haha. Plus with a longer lens, you can be further away from water...Nikon has crappy waterproofing, even on the pro bodies aren't that great. Have fun and post up some pics tomorrow!!

    Well it won't be until July, I'm just getting some ideas before I go up there, and I do wanna do some swimming too. And not make it awkward for everyone else! Lol

    I do have a 18-105 lens for a longer and can borrow a 50mm 1.8

    You really want something like a 70-200 so you can keep your distance. But that kit lens should work ok. The whole idea of using a long lens is so you can keep your distance and catch them being real (not fake posing).

    I do have a 55-300 lens, but it isn't VR, would that be ok?

    Outside during the day, you'll be able to get your shutter up fast enough that you won't need VR

    It is an indoor park, but has a lot of lights and windows to the outside

    You know, not too many years ago people shot with non-VR lenses jk!

    Even if it is indoors, as long as you have decent light, you can use faster shutter speeds. Just watch your white balance being that you'll have fake sun! Have fun!

    I also have an underwater digi cam for interesting shots, because a underwater pocket camera is much cheaper the underwater case for D90 Any ideas! Thanks a lot for everything,
