Photobombed Smokestack

Here’s another people-behaving badly video and this time a local beat reporter’s perfectly set up shot gets photobombed by a person with a phone…a similar thing happened to me on assignment for Wired.

My shot was perfectly set up to catch the winner of a bike race….waiting, ready, ready…and what I didn’t expect was that the crowd would push in and lean over the fence! Still got a shot, just not THE ONE.

A tip: stand your ground. And,  I’d have asked the photobomber for his footage after that, looks like he may have got a good pan.

My daily shooter is Sony A1 with a vertical grip and various Sony lenses attached like the FE 20mm F1.8. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
