Worded weird but I was recently shooting some street scenes in dwntwn La and I was laying down on the ground to get a better angle on this statue when I hear my friend yelling, I turn around only to see a car coming at me and I guess they couldn't see me. So I rolled out of the way and it sped past me. Just wondering with the occational being chased by a hobo or a dog, has anyone ever had a near death or dangerous experience while shooting? Or am the only dumb one to almost get hit by a car. (I know the 1st post will probably say: yea you are)

Went as #y?E.

WTFconfusedIf some random stranger started taking pics of me for no reason, I would have probably done the same.

last night my buddy was pumping gas after our graduation ceremony and i had my camera with me
i wanted to try some low light shit silhouette so i set up my camera, walked out side, crouched down and started taking pictures while he pumped.

somehow, the gas line kinked and all of a sudden one huge burst came, and gas flew everywhere. both our suits are covered, my memory card got fucked up. thank god my camera is fine (or so it seems so far)

we were literally dripping in gas.

maybe not a near death experience, but scary none the less.

The only thing near anything with someone or something coming in contact with me was a security guard prowling around watching me. Dang, it just sounds like most of you guys are just careless except Goslett because that just sounds like a freak accident. A pipe bursting at a gas station, lolwut.
