    Not much injuries, but usually I gotta sprained neck, tired eyes, and aching thighs due to squatting. Of course, usually my pants or bermudas will be dirty after a shoot.

    I was bitten by a ravishing vampire in a night shoot in a dilapidated haunted house.

    The bite was not painful. In fact it was quite pleasurable at the end when she worked her tongue to suck out the blood.

    I think I just strained my right wrist from carrying the camera for too long.
    Interesting... This happened to me about a week ago too! The lower part of my right hand near the wrist was very painful. Fortunately, after about 5 days, it suddenly and miraculously healed. No more pain at all, no matter how I pressed it.

    The funny thing is, before this injury, I was having pain in the same part but it was very minor and only hurt a bit when pressed. But I had been having this pain for a looong time. Then after this injury and after it healed, the old pain was gone too! So it was a blessing in disguise, I guess. I'm quite happy.

    But then now I worry about getting such injuries again. Wonder if it becos the grip on my camera is too small (Canon 400D) and will changing to a larger camera help... or make it worse cos of the weight? Or will adding a wrist strap help? Anyway have any comments on these or similar experience?

    The best photographer is one who is inspired by the innate nature of his subjects.

    My shoulders... (from carrying camera bags)
    Lower back from getting into all sorts of postures to shoot
    My wrists from holding the camera and lens for long hours

    my mind... from wracking to getting the shot I wanted...

    Well, on a more serious note, that means ur neck is strained and can pop. Mine's perpetually like that.... I don't think it's anything to worry about... If my head falls off, I'll let you know....
    Haha ouch right is not affected.

    Oh yahh...... I kena G-Locked once. (pun on the name of the locking technology this particular brand uses.. owners will know) That tripod is real mean to the fingers when you slam it shut and your fingers catch in between the feet and the locks.

    Never had any. But if I have to guess, we might see:

    • Falling off from the ladder during an event shoot
    • Buying lenses that one's puny body can't afford (e.g. f/2.8 lenses)
    • Bruises after being shoved by an annoyed uncle at Chinatown
    • ...

    I was mentally affected by a bad critique someone gave me in a photo forum.

    For months I couldn't bear to pick up the camera. I was in deep depression and in medication.
