…With sports, you probably have some safety equipment, nd youa need to think…about keeping your athlete's safe or yourself safe if you're the one riding.…And you need to think about the equipment being safe.…And sometimes, the combination of the two…is exactly where the safety problems occur.…You don't want equipment flying off and hitting the subject that you're shooting.…You don't want it banging into somebody else.…So make sure you think carefully about…how you're going to keep your subject matter safe.…Don't have loose equipment around.…Don't have equipment in dangerous places that it…can fall on people or get in the way.…
We're going to be at a skate park here.…So I need to make sure that the cameras are…far enough back that they're not going to get rolled over.…Both because it can cause a pretty bad accident, and it could trash the gear.…So, before you set up the shot, always ask yourself,…are you going to be putting the subject matter at risk?…Or are you going to be putting your gear at risk?…And ideally, neither one should happen.…
