It looks like the bike broadsided the car - I wonder who was at fault?? I hope everyone was OK.
oh sorry, story is
ok there was 3 cars, the car that got hit was in front, he was turning but the other cars were slowing down for him, the motorcyclist got inpatient and passed the car in front of him as soon as the corolla turned and boom.
I'm blown away by the second photo. A police officer helping lift a patient on a back board. I'm at work and showed my crew and they are blown away also. That doesn't happen around here. The guy should get an award.
Nice set. I'll bet he won't be so impatient next time.
that weird, if i were a cop i would help out since that would be my duty
I haven't worked the road sine 1993. I would always help. Aren't we all on the same team?
Ouuucchhh...Hope everyone involved are a OK
... and that's probably why you aren't a cop!!!
Great work on the shots! Were you a witness or did you just happen to stumble on the scene? I'd be a little weird taking photo's of an accident unless I was actually a newspaper guy...
we saw the guy before the accident pass by my friends house, then about 3 mins later we see a cop hawl major butt down the road, i was like, somethings going down!!! so we jumped in the batmobile and got to teh scene, the cop was like, so are you with the newspaper. my reply...with the school newspaper, which i am. haha
First, I've never met a cop who wouldn't have helped.
Second, nice shots. What lens were you using and at about what focal length?
The best way to become a newspaper guy is to take pictures of events and submit them to your local paper. Next thing you know, you become a regular stringer.
I had my camera in my bag when I came across a car fire. I took pictures of the blaze and of the firemen arriving and putting it out.
I made a couple of bucks selling the pictures to the local paper, and they were incuded in a feature article, which included photo credits. Afterwards I was contacted by the fire department, and was honored to donate use rights so they could put some of the pictures in their web gallery. It was a righteous shoot, just like the one Charles did.
Interesting persepective Uncle Frank! My understanding is papers typicly don't want to pay for images any more unless it's something really newsworthy that their own shooters didn't cover.
I'll have to start keeping the D300 and 50 1.4 on the seat a little more just in case! A few bucks is always cool and getting photo credits is even cooler!
Nice shot Uncle Frank.
its my dream to be a stringer. or shoot for national geographic.
i was using the 70 - 200
Good luck with that dream.
I've been an officer for 32 years, and I always helped lift backboards and gurneys, or hold the IV bag. I have a newspaper picture of me somewhere on an accident scene where I'm helping lift a gurney. I didn't know you weren't supposed to...LOL.
Oh, by the way...nice shots.
