Another fear I have that photography is forcing (well, “forcing”) me to confront is the fear of trespassing. This isn’t a disorder, of course. I just don’t want to get caught, hassled or shot. Some places are just known to be okay – like Lester, Washington. Other places are practically defended to the death by gun-toting owners.
Or course, I understand that. People don’t usually trespass just to see what’s around the next bend. People on both sides of the fence are often destructive and horrible.
So be careful out there. Get permission when you can. Be unseen when you can’t. Be brave, but not stupid.
Also, carry fast film, just in case you need to pull quick photos. Unless you know it’s okayish to be there – then take whatever you want. I took 6iso Tasma Mikrat on a very cloudy day and still manged to blow out a few shots. Go figure.
