How do you go out and photograph if you have physical limitations due to age or illness or both? For those of you who don't have any problems - use your imagination and try your best to put yourself into that situation. You never had to worry before, but suddenly find yourself at the mercy of others to get where you want to go and can't always accomplish what you'd like once you get there. Maybe you had an accident and suddenly find yourself in a wheelchair, or maybe you have back problems that limit the gear you can carry and how far you can hike till you come across that one in a million shot. Perhaps you have a chronic knee or arm injury, bad arthiritis, or like me suffer from peripheral neuropathy[numbness of fingertips and feet] a prolonged and sometimes permanent side effect of chemo therapy. And suppose your mobility is so limited that where you can go to photograph becomes limited - say your own overgrown yard? Do you continue to shoot the same stuff over and over in different ways? And how many ways could you find to re-shoot the same things? Until this past year, I didn't give much thought to this myself, since I had few physical limitations other than cranky knees, but How do you go out and photograph, expecially nature, if you have physical issues that limit how low you can go to get the proper perspective for the shot you want? That limit where you can walk or climb to, to get the right vantage point for the shot? Do you pass it up altogether, or accept a higher angle of perspective for the shot? What if there isn't another angle for a good shot? I'm just curious how you all would overcome these types of issues if you had to, or how you have overcome them. For me, my hands are clearing up and as long as I don't go out to shoot in the cold [anything below 40f] I'm okay with handling the camera and changing its settings and lenses. Plus I invested in several of the handwarmers which I keep in my camera bag. My feet however prevent me from going out alone so I must wait till my husband is off from work to take me out to shoot - this limits me to one day a week. We usually go somewhere that is a flat gravel\sand\dirt path but at times I see things off the path I'd like to shoot. If the incline to get there is to steep, I must passup the shot. If its a matter of climbing over logs or tree roots, my husband assists me in getting there, but I can't always get that low angle shot of something that I'd really like. So I'm just curious as to how others would deal or have dealt with issues like this and how many of you might actually say that you'd find another hobby.
