The Unseen

Everybody Street (2013), directed by Cheryl Dunn, goes into detail about how photographers go through risky situations just to capture an image. One image that constantly popped in my head, was the one of that displayed a gang member pointing a gun straight into the photographers lens. No one should ever be placed in front of a gun because it is dangerous and you will be seconds away from death. What the photographer did was brave, and it took a lot of guts! What I learned from this was, as a photographer, you need to be the one in control; not just of the image, but also of the people being photographed. When in control dangerous situations are avoided because you make the person comfortable with being photographed. Trust is the answer.
