Pool shoots are fun! The combination of a model with a water backdrop can be quite an aesthetic. But what can make an image even more fun is the use of pool toys. Using pool toys as props can upgrade the image in an non-obtrusive way. There are countless ways these special props can upgrade an image. Here are a few of my favorites:
First of all, WOW! Even without a model, the swan float adds such character and fun to the image. In or out of the water, this prop can be used to lay on in or out of the water, stand next to, or have in the background. Switch it up with the unique variations of colors and species: Black swan, gold swan, flamingo, rainbow Pegasus and more!
They're not just for children, honey! These timeless toys are actually the perfect prop to add to an already amazing image. Go big or small! From Super Soakers to small hand guns, add your own twist for a splashy shoot.
Food Themed Floats
Fun, Fun, Fun! Pizza, pretzels, pineapples, avocado, watermelon, and more. The possibilities are endless. Pick your poison and create effortlessly great photos with any of these "tasty" additions. These props are best seen in the image when taken from above and on a beautifully sunny day.
BONUS TIP: To make you skin look ultra wet and shiny, spray oil sheen onto your body and then mist on water with a spray bottle!
