    Default Combat photographer tells all

    Bob Hillerby started this post in the summer of 2009 on the Pentax forums.
    What started as a short post, went on for a good 30+ pages spanning 4 years, culminating in a book, and then a dramatic end to the thread.....

    Makes me feel horribly humbled , good read though I really gotta move out of reading this in my small iPhone screen.

    Glad to be sharing it.

    Something other than the usual gear orientated talk.
    A glimpse of what combat photographers went thru, from training, practical and shooting conditions and life during those times/days.

    around pages 10+ now. Kinda surprised that the combat photographers did go thru proper training on handling equipment and of course foundation skills like composition etc. I can't imagine living a life like that where almost everyday I gotta worry on how to safe-keep my equipment, think I'd have snapped if my camera had fell straight into a padi field and to find it fungus infested within the next few days haha.
