Pure gold!

Great capture of the moment of impact too!!

I shoot with both eyes open...I find that helps a lot in keeping some degree of situational awareness

Now, that is stupid. He was literally blocking his path. What kind of photographers are you when you are literally standing in front of your moving subject. If I were the skater, I would push this guy in the face for blocking my path. It could be fatal. The skater could be going about some 25mph+. I shoot cycling races and just imagine I am standing right in front of a speeding peleton going down hill at 40mph......:cool:

That guy is Joe McNally and that is a video excerpt of a shoot he did. Both Joe and the skater were well aware of each other,

Part of it is on his Language of Light DVD, where Joe is hanging out the back of a moving van with 3 long boarders trailing behind it.

My personal favorite was watching Scott Kelby get run over by Aaron Rogers in the NFC Championship game. Priceless.

Had I done this, I might seen the photographer at the end of the wire. Now he just appeared in the viewfinder just before the collision.

In moments like these I'm never sure whether I took the photos because I understood what was in the viewfinder or did I just react to something unknown and unexpected I saw.

You can also hurt yourself badly without any help from others. That just happened to David duChemin: http://www.pixelatedim​age.com/blog/2011/04/a​nd-then-i-fell/ (external link)

Safety is always the first thing on my mind.

One has to be aware. Shooting at 17mm has had me collide into my friends faces a few times, shooting skateboarders ultrawide has also taught me how to move quickly whilst looking in the VF.

Damn, scariest thing I read regarding this was when someone tried to stab the Bang Bang Club photographer Greg Marinovich and he didn't even notice. He apparently just felt an impulse and took a step forward.


Lots of old stuff but hey I am a student

Sometimes I can look right at the dangerous thing. Knowing when a propane tank and fire is safe and when its not is useful. This tank was venting propane out the top. I wouldn't have wanted to be this close if it was going to blow.
