Well, technically we haven’t trademarked the phrase, but it’s certainly the motto we live by at Keberly Photography. In the last year we’ve been waist-deep in water, covered in mud, smeared with road apples, eaten alive by mosquitoes, bloodied, battered and bruised — all in an effort to capture amazing images.
Two of us (and our subject, of course) knee-deep in water: one shooting and one holding a light source on an extended tripod. The weather looks warm and sunny, but the water was absolutely freezing, not to mention that the slippery footing nearly cost us a camera or two.
We “borrowed” Mom’s antique chair, dragged it through Hines Park and dropped it in a marsh among the cattails and summer foliage. Thanks, Mom!
Two words: Road Apples. Sterlized the equipment, burned our clothes.
Mud, mud, mud. Just below this waterfall is a steep, messy, muddy ledge. We needed some additional light on Chelsea, so we slithered on our backs, holding a remote flash unit and umbrella just inches out of frame. We were filthy, but the shots made for great senior wallet photos — espcially for a varsity swimmer.
There’s a reason this Northville viaduct is covered in grafitti—it’s nearly impossible to reach without getting compeltely filthy. What’s even more difficult is dragging two cameras, light stands, flashes and reflectors down there!
