I was so excited to nail this shot. Normally I would be working the fire, However this time I was on the outside looking in. This was a spur of the moment shot. Right through the window. After this photo was seen I had guys texting me all night long ( hey did you get me in any photos? Did you get me?) LOL it was an intense fire!

Why do we do it? What makes this job so inviting? For the guts and glory? To be called a hero? You ask a firefighter why they do it, most can't tell you. It's not for the money! Most will tell you "it's in my blood", and every one of them will tell you " I love it!" Day and night you think about the job. You hear a siren or see a fire truck you take notice. You own fifty fire shirts from all over the county and wear them proud till they fall apart. Any where you go you can stop into a fire house walk in they call you brother. Dedication to a profession that you can't even call work. You do it because you love it.

Breath taking... No pun intended

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at a multi jurisdiction training fire.
Time
Early morning.
Lighting
Not much on lighting on this on it was a quick shoot right into an opened window.
Equipment
Coolpix p-510. It was quick and easy to carry in my bunker pants to grab a quick shot when I could.
Inspiration
I love taking pictures of fiirefighting just as much as I love the job. I was on the outside for this particular revolution. I decided to wait outside the window a get a few shots. I was so excited when I got this one. It was perfect.
Editing
Not a whole lot of post processing for this just a little saturation and contrast.
In my camera bag
Depends on the situation. For this day I had a Nikon d90 my iPhone and a coolpix p510.
Feedback
Think outside the box, be patient and do not hasitat.
