How this AP photographer captured a unique splash at the swimming worlds with an underwater camera

How this AP photographer captured a unique splash at the swimming worlds with an underwater camera | Soggy Science | Scoop.it
I'm always thinking of ways to take a different photo. I'm looking for things like new angles and exposures, in sports as well as in general news. Because there are multiple players involved in sports, you have to take as many pictures as possible in one location, which can result in a lot of similar photos. Swimming had already been going on for several days at the World Aquatics Championships when I decided to change things up to see what I could get. In the preliminary round, I planned to take shots outside the marquee middle lanes - 3, 4, and 5 - we usually focus on. After adjusting the underwater camera location and test-shooting a few times, I could predict that certain positions would give me the diverse, new photos I wanted.
