Im always amazed that im the guy doing the training. I always hope i know what im doing.

I have signed up for a class

at Gary Camera. I have a long history of sucking at photography, maybe a little professional instruction will help. I know I began actually learning things years back, when I started listening to people who were obviously smarter than me.

On the other hand, I can always go back to just being a gear geek.

Safety Third.

No, I don’t mean Blastolene, (Though I do love those folks) I’m talking about the nature of Industrial safety. This comes to mind because most of my safety certifications have expired or are going to expire soon and I am taking my refreshers (And boy are there a bunch of them).

This is what I’m talking about:

Look, the safety training is important, like all training, because you have to know what to do when the moment occurs. You should know how to shoot if you have to, you should know how to use a blowout kit, (and you should HAVE ONE), you should be able to deal with the acids and caustics you can come into contact with, and you should be prepared for the worst.

but like Mike says, just because you’re in compliance doesn’t mean you’re out of danger. Your safety is on YOU.
