Andy Hooper: My image of the week – Great Britain diving hopeful Tonia Couch
10:52 GMT, 16 July 2012
Being asked to go to Plymouth to shoot diver Tonia Couch was one of my best assignments of the year.
She’s one of the easiest people to photograph and I couldn’t really go wrong.
I have travelled to Plymouth before but always to photograph her training partner Tom Daley and Tonia is often overlooked – until now.
For this image I had the floor of the diving pool raised so the water was only three inches deep which made it a beautiful dark blue colour.
Tonia’s personality and swimsuit stand out from the shallow water.
Exposure 1/200th of a second at F5.6
