Freediving has become my new interest. Since I managed to hold my breath (a.k.a static apnea) for about 3 minutes, then it’s also become my challenge to be able to dive into 5 meter deep and remain still down there. Obviously, I need to use the weight belt to do so. But it’s really worth it!
I’m now able to take pictures from down under, and it really is such a great experience for me to explore more. It is an amazing feeling to be able to strike some aquatic poses where it’s nearly impossibly done during normal circumstances on land.
Hopefully I can do static apnea for more than 3 minutes in the near future. Wish me luck!
Also thanks to my friends who have participated in this underwater photo exercise. You’re awesome, guys!
