Thought the video would get me fired up for street shooting, but in the end it just left me blank!

What do you do when someone (illegally) pulls a gun on you?

Yes, one of my concerns. Either that, or Fist in Face, followed by Busted Camera (don't know which would be worse...)

I'd yell "FREEZE!!", then add, "Move a little to the left, the lighting is better...."


"BANG!"

Actually, that might work if you have a powerful enough flash!

Hi, looking that funny video i remembered an episode ocurred to an aquaintance of mine (dear friend of PG)

A few weeks after 9/11 this person was in washington near obelisque and tryied to take a photo from a squirrel.
He couldnīt, a huge folk smashed his face with a blow, broke his nose a pair of teeth also.
After the man was caught up by officers around he claimed "how this man can photograph that squirrel with all the mess going on"

Makes me think it might happen!!!

Bye!

No, I just love the idea of a flash as self-defense!
