...walking along the roadside with my tripod - which may have an umbrella duct taped to it to fight the rain. Who else here, like me, is content with looking like a weirdo wandering around, pacing up and down a street cocking your head, if it means you get the shot? For this shot for instance, I was on my knees behind the tripod for 15 minutes, soaking wet, just watching the traffic through my viewfinder, waiting for the shot. Two people walked by in that time and asked: "what are you doing?" and "Do you work for the paper or something?" Bigger here Well I don't work for the paper, but that's a good idea. It might be fun. I wonder what it takes to get a job like that? Here's one I did on another night while out with some photographer buddies. If you look closely, you can see my mouth is motion blurred from telling somebody "Oh, back off a second, I'm doing an exposure. Yeah, really. Hey! That's not funny! Stop it!". Luckily, they weren't in the shot long enough for you to see them. Bigger here And another here, again on another night with other photographer buddies. Bigger here After I started seriously taking photographs, I learned to let go of my embarrassment of being in awkward positions and doing abnormal behaviour and to just get the shot. Fearlessness really seems to help.
