It’s that time of the year again when it’s great to be out hiking and shooting. Some of the best photos are off the beaten path but sometimes that path can be dangerous. It’s crucial that you remember that no photo is worth endangering yourself so here’s a few quick tips to stay safe to get that shot.
First, go light. Don’t bring everything in your arsenal, just one lens and a body. That weight can be brutal given enough time. Second, bring a buddy. Shooting is always more fun when you have someone to share it with even if they aren’t into photography. Lastly, make sure someone else knows where you’re going. No photograph is worth getting hurt for so be careful while you’re having fun.
