When we think of a job that requires hard work, stress on the body, getting dirty, we call it a Blue Collar job.
When you look at what we go through as macro photographers, it sure is the blue collar of nature photography.
Hard on the back, knees take a beating. we get dirty from head to toe, sounds like blue collar to me.
We’re a tough bunch us macro photographers, and proud of it.
Looks like this macro lady will be doing some wash when she get home.
I keep my Chiropractor in business with the stress on my back.
This shots not to tough on the body, but just got to watch out for the ticks and spiders crawling inside your pant legs.
Sometimes you have to contort your body in funky positions.
I should call the guy from the “Dirty Jobs” show, and take him into the musky smelling, mosquito infested swamp for a day.
I wonder if macro photographers get paid as well as the landscape photographers do? The blue collar workers usually have to work harder for less pay.
But that’s okay we do it because we love it.
It puts us in closer touch with mother earth.
