    im curious, whats the most extreme thing u did to get the shot????


    over the past few weeks, i've found myself in comprimising situations, ... approaching strange people on the street, followed people... almost passed out over the weekend from heat exhaustion trying to get "the shot" ... sitting on edges of high overpasses of a freeway, ... going to seedy areas ... late hours of the night, just to get "the shot" ....

    do u go to extremes to get the shot?? ... how far would u go/have gone??

    Hi Dew!
    The worst I've ever done is risked stepping into something nasty.
    It sounds as though you're trying to turn photography into an Olympic event!
    You don't work for the FBI do you?

    Could it be he just can't afford a hit man?

    It certainly sounds as though you're going all out to get those shots but please be careful, we like your input.

    You sure go to more trouble than I do, but it will pay off for you some day.

    The most trouble I ever went to for a photo, was remove shoes, socks and roll my pants up above my knees to get a head on shot of a waterfall in the Smokies, and with a tripod. Those days are gone forever now.

    I was suspended by a 150lb limit rope (I'm 195) off a 300ft high bridge.


    Actually I could only wish! I haven't done anything too amazing yet. hehe

    The most outrageous thing I've done to get a shot this past month was while on roller blades I grabbed a truck's bumper to get a moving shots of it's underside and the traffic around. This was in Copenhagen Denmark and since most people are on bikes here, not cars and trucks, it wasn't as dangerous as it might be in say. Seattle where I lived before here.

    Either way, the shots were crap but I learned enough to try it again soon... though the right 'truck' hasn't come along at the 'right time.'

    lates...

    200+km/h on a motorcycle on the freeway with one hand holding the camera.
    The shot was a total blur... can't keep a camera steady with 200km/h winds.

    those shots were deleted since they were complete crap but I promise you if I get some 'clean' shots of it I'll post em here. I imagine I should have a good chance sometime by this weekend but no promises!
