Extreme Dedication

Just saw this on BorrowLenses.com's Facebook page.

This guy knows dedication.

He's standing on partially hardened lava, taking a picture of more lava. Look close, in front of the tripod, you can see layers beneath that haven't cooled yet.

Hopefully he got paid the big bucks for those shots--National Geographic photographer, maybe?

I saw it on the BL facebook page as well and they were asking for captions. Someone stated that it looked to be a fake, which it could be. If it's not, that's guy is an idiot.

It looks fake to me simply due to the fact his shoes both appear to be on fire and no way anyone would be that calm and focused on getting the shot if their shoes were on fire heck his feet would most likely be blistering by that point and his tripod is on fire yet somehow still supporting the camera? I call fake on that. The tripod would have begun to melt and buckle almost instantly with that kind of heat on it not to mention it looks to also be on fire. Not saying I haven't seen photogs do shoots where their tripod is on a lava flow but I've never seen one where the guys shoes and tripod were on fire.

TL;DR shopped as

Could easily be pre-shoot effects(Not everything is 'photoshop'), but standing on material that hot in such foot wear is going to be more than just painful.

I've stood on materials that were hot enough to set fire to a dropped shoe lace, but I was also wearing way more safety gear and not hanging around to setup a tripod like that. Getting that close to those kind of temps wearing that?

Toasty.

Turns out it wasn't PS'd. Photographer Gets So Close to Lava That His Shoes and Tripod Catch on Fire


THAT BEING SAID, read the last paragraph. The flames were real, but they were.... encouraged.

When we asked Hirata about whether the flames were natural, here’s what he had to say: “His shoes an tripod did not combust due to lava… That’s all I will say. But they are on fire and its in one shot.” It appears it was a clever PR stunt after all.

cool shot none the less.

That's what photography is all about. While no where near as extreme, I was tasked with getting pictures of my soon to be brother in law at his HS graduation. Rather than get crummy shots from a mile away or the back of his head, I maneuvered around and probably made a bit of a fool of myself (I sat down with the teachers to get in closer, oops). But frankly I didn't care if it meant I got the shot for him and the family.

Faking something to get more publicity, at least we know he earned the Sea Shepard shirt
