I'm sure we all read the news stories of the deaths of photographers Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondoros in Libya a couple of weeks ago. War zones are dangerous places and tragic as their deaths were they are not the first and won't be the last photographers to be killed covering a conflict. Yet it's not just in war zones that danger lurks. David DuChemin, aa Canadian photographer whose blog at Pixelated Image is a regular read for me and whose books I have on my shelves is currently blogging from hospital. On a photoshoot in Italy DuChemin climbed onto a wall to get a better shot, lost his balance and fell off the other side - 20 feet onto concrete. He's alive, but won't be walking again for three months. It did make me wonder about the risks we take to take pictures. I'm never going near a war zone, but I have from time to time, entered old crumbling buildings, crossed railway lines, ducked out into traffic and probably a few others things. They all seem harmless at the time but they are all very stupid. It's not just the professionals who can become so absorbed with the shot that they will take risks. All of us can be so consumed or so focused on getting the shot we want that we will take chances we would not ordinarily take. So, this week's photography tip is, Take Care.
