You’re probably thinking “there’s dangers?” Well, it depends on what field of photography that you get into. For example, war photography is dangerous. A war photographer has to actually go into the places that the soldiers go into and document it. Sometimes, however, a soldier would be the documenter. Even with travel photography, you have to be careful where you go. Some places are extremely dangerous and you also have to watch and learn customs because you can get into some trouble if you don’t.
We’ve seen, throughout history, those images that make us think “how did they do that?” or “how did they get that close?” and you have to be willing to get in the thick of things and sometimes you may have to pay the consequences. But sometimes, the price pays off because you can get a very powerful image.
