I used to baby my belongings to the point of being obsessive. I was reprimanded as a child for not sharing and letting my cousin play with my He-Man action figures. I was worried he was going to break them. Am I alone in feeling like this? I mention this because I’ve had to adapt as I’ve gotten older, and it’s been a struggle.
It’s taken me a long time to stop worrying about my camera gear and start USING my camera gear. I would be so worried about getting anything scratched or scraped that I would limit myself to safer shots to protect the gear. No more. The gear is there to be used. I’ve taken my gear out in the rain, outside the back of moving cars, on granite ledges of buildings, and even near CHILDREN!!!! Anything for the shot.
