Photography is a pain in the neck! Literally. I started seeing a chiropractor last week for a miserable stiff neck and tight upper back. When the doctor asked me what might have caused it, I said I didn't know. "Stress?" he asked. I laughed. After all, I'm starting my 13th year of retirement from teaching school. Two days later, I had an answer for him: photography. It came to me when I was working on some still life images, items on a relatively low table in front of the only window I use for light. I was bent over, looking through the viewfinder when it struck me: this is what is causing my neck issues! And I can now remember when it started. It was July 31, when I spent 20 minutes craning my neck backwards to photograph the Blue Moon. Three treatments later, I'm still not totally loosened up, but I'm thinking carefully about my posture when I use my camera, and I'm working out a plan to raise the table used for my still life shots.
