What would you have NOT done, if you did not have a camera in your hand to take a photo?


I'll start it off:

Hung out of an open cockpit airplane run by an inexperienced pilot who just got his license.

Balanced on a slippery rock at the top of a waterfall with a 100 foot drop below.

great topic!

i'm new to photography, so i'm going to answer from the other side of the camera. I got married 3 months ago in riviera maya mexico. we were taking trash the dress pictures & came across a cool cave. I never would have gone into this cave if I didn't want to get that great picture. There were so many bats circling above our heads. we waded through bat poop to get to a spot where the light was amazing. oh & we were being eaten up by mosquitos.

I know our photographers never would have ventured in this cave if it wasn't for their love of getting a great picture. photography will make you do crazy things :)

Yes, I would not have climbed over a barbed wire fence into a wrecking yard protected by dobermans to take a photo if it was not part of my job.

Lay down on the pavement of Lombard St ("The crookedest street in the world" San Francisco, CA) to get images of the cars coming toward me...

Go out at night in the winter at minus 25 to shoot reindeer.
