Stealing Your Flash

Seth asks:

I just have one question that's always sort of nagged the back of my mind.

I get the idea of the setup in the bleachers, clamped on something like a railing. But, my concern is - what about people fiddling with (moving, adjusting) or even worse, STEALING, your stuff. I mean, I guess there's really no way to prevent that from happening right?

__________

Ah, but we are not totally defenseless in such situations, Seth. A brief word from the PsyOps division, inside…
__________


First of all, yes, I do frequently clamp my flashes within reach of John Q. Public at high school basketball games, for instance. Or at least I did, as I have not had to shoot prep hoops for a few years now. But I have done it dozens (if not hundreds) of times without any lost gear.

If I am in a semi-public spot (like on a railing that is not immediately adjacent to seating) I will just use some caution tape around the setup. People tend to respect that. But if you are literally putting the flash right next to where people are sitting, you'll probably want to ratchet up the fear factor a bit.

You have to remember that people are not used to seeing, say, an SB-800 with a PW clamped to a railing/conduit/etc. at a sporting event. So it does look a little different. And some of them may well be thinking, "Wonder what the guy at the pawn shop will give me for one of these?

So in dicey locations, I used to work with a little sign on each of my flashes that said:

WARNING:
POTENTIALLY FATAL VOLTAGE.
DO NOT TOUCH.


I stuck a little skull-and-crossbones (the universal symbol for free entry into this year's Darwin Awards) in there, too. All in all, a pretty ominous if exaggerated presentation. And who's to say a charged SB might not be fatal if you, say, licked the capacitor inside, amirite?

The point is to leverage something they do not completely understand with a nagging, unquantified fear of death. And it actually works pretty well!

In fact, if people are starting to sit around the flash when I am setting it up (or giving a quick adjustment right before the game) I will casually mention that they should be careful around this stuff. Just a smile, with a friendly tip. Then maybe make direct eye contact with the person you think could most likely be a problem and say something like, "Oh yeah -- these things can kill you if you grab them wrong…"

At this point, most people will actually begin skootch away from them a little bit. And you can see them wondering why some idiot would put something so dangerous within reach of the public. Sometimes they'll even point it out to a security guard. In which case you simply take him or her aside and explain the real deal.

And don't forget that if you see someone hanging out suspiciously around your flash, you have a remote in your hand and can seriously play with them that way, too.

Just sayin'.

In fact, the occasional manual pop during the game's down time can remind people with sticky fingers that the flashes are being used constantly -- and would be missed immediately.


For the Walk Back

Another thing that we were always aware of was the odd person who might scout you out and follow the 4- or 5-digit purse-on-legs back towards your car. One thing I always used to do for those iffy late night walks back to the car was to sling everything over my shoulder except for two items, in the small chance I would get jumped.

In my left hand, a fully-charged SB, set to 1/1 power and zoomed out. Thumb on the test button too. In my right hand, a heavy Gitzo monopod, strapped onto my wrist and hand on the grip.

Basic strategy:

1. ***POP***

2. Whoppity, whoppity, whoppity, whoppity...

3. Rinse and repeat as needed.


Never had to use it, but it always made me feel a little more like Joe Don Baker when I needed it.

I suppose you would probably have your camera with you while setting up the lights, a quick snap of anyone in "schooching" toward the lights with the adviso that it is to accompany their obit if they happen to mess with it.

I have never thought of a flash or tripod as assault weapons, but now... boy, I am feeling a little more even handed. Nice tip. Cant wait to see you in Buffalo. Maybe by then you'll have ways to use a flash to dig your car out of a snowy ditch on the side of the road.

My wife carries a "surefire" flashlight in her purse for just that reason. I am a Peace Officer in Texas, and it is perfectly legal to shine lights into the eyes of rough looking persons in any parking lot I know of. You can also carry them on airplanes when you might not be able to carry anything else usefull.

From social psychology comes another way to guard your remote equipment. You have to reduce the diffusion of responsibility (or so).
Here is what normally happens, if you just let your SB sit there and someone starts to take it off: People look around... it does not seem right not to do something... but nobody else is moving... so better keep still.

But if you tell one person close to the SB to just have an eye on it. Only you and your assistant should touch/remove it. Loads of experiments show that people will actually defend YOUR stuff with all they have.

Ha! I once had an occasion to use that self-defense trick. Although yet a novice with the camera, I discovered the power of zoomed strobes while tooling around with a new (used) Achiever on my new (used) FE2. It took a few minutes or more before I could see right again.

I used that setup for some nighttime field work for my undergrad major in ecology. Tracks and scat told me that it was mountain lion territory so I kept an eye on my back for the whole walk to and from the field site.

Sure enough, one night something big dropped out of a tree and ducked behind a bush after running a few steps in my direction. Cats have reflective corneas and he must have not liked staring into my headlamp. I had the Achiever out like you said, but I maced him instead. Maybe that bit of aversive training helped other nighttime solo hikers in the future, although to be fair hiking solo there in the nighttime is kind of stupid.

Push the modeling button on an SB800 with the wide diffuser down and it yields a sound and an appearance modestly similar to a stun gun/taser.

Great ideas, just one pertinent comment however,

walking back to your car armed will make you feel safer. however if woppity woppity doesnt work. Drop your kit, if you have insured it its only metal and plastic and lumps of glass.

The only precious thing about your camera kit is you, the most valuble part of the kit is you,

Gear can be replaced, but a mommy/daddy/sister/brother cannot.

However good article,

I was shooting cityscapes one night when someone came out of the dark and said "hey". I went to Defcon 1 inside ready to swat this guy if I had to. I hit the quick release and had the tripod ready as a weapon. It turned out he was merely curious of what and why I was shooting at night with no light around. I educated him about long exposure and remote triggers. he was just curious and wanted to know a thing or two. He apologized for startling me and he may have bought some things after that.

Related, but marginally OT --- I teach HS Yearbook and Photo, and our coaches (though generally great people) are complete prima donnas when it comes to allowing us to use flash in the main gym during our games/matches. Volleyball, basketball, gymnastics, you name it --- no go on the flash (on board or remote). Advice/tips/tricks from any of you on how to handle this? I've thought of trying to acclimate them during practices, etc., but haven't had much success getting a foot in the door.

Blogger Douglas Urner said...

@West High Yearbook - the problem may not be the coaches, but your league. Where I teach the league rules bar flashes pretty much everywhere where they would be useful. Often for good, or at least quasi-good reasons. For example starting equipment at swim meets uses a bright flash for signaling, in gymnastic meets the reasoning is that the athletes are doing things that could result in injury if they loose focus, etc, etc. The penalty to the home team is often forfeit of the game or meet if they don't control the fans -- and the local press. So it may not really be the coaches that are your problem.

With swim and gymnastics we've been able to use continuous lights to good effect. Gets us an easy stop or two.

I don't think labeling gear as dangerous and then placing it near spectators is a wise idea. You won't find me doing it. I use cables and lock the big lights in arena catwalks for safety and security. For speedlights in gyms I keep an eye on them, and sometimes tell friendly folks nearby that I'm the only one who should be touching the stuff. Most people are great and will look out for you and your stuff. I like making friends and good pictures during assignments and don't focus my energy on fear and danger and crime. Works for me.

After being surrounded by 7 unruly fans at an Oakland A's game, I too found how gear can quickly turn into innovative weaponry.
Although I didn't have an SB set to 'stun', flipping my camera around and grabbing the long end of a 300 f4 was enough to intimidate most of them to leave. Didn't even have to get to the 'whoopity whoopity' stage.

The timing for this post couldn't be better. I'm in the process of scheduling a trip out to Los Angeles to document a breakdancing competition.

FANTASTIC!...I love the Flash pop/Whompitty Whomp Whomp Whomp combo!

Years ago, I read on usenet (for those of you who know what that is! ;) about a guy in Canada who sent his would-be mugger to the ER for stitches (and charges)...the mugger pulled a knife and said "give me your camera" ...the guy, who happened to have his F2 in his hand with the strap wrapped around his wrist a few times said "awwlright!" and whacked him on top of the head quickly!

Not that you wouldn't run the risk of breaking your LCD screen these days, but that would seem cheaper to me then having to go thru the hassle of dealing with insurance companies.

The flash / tripod combo is much more effective, tho, especially with my good solid gizo ballhead on the end giving you a real heavy thump! :)

Swinging the F2 with a motor and a 135 f2 lens on it (Remember those heavy buggers?) missed his head but got his shoulder but none the less discouraged him.

If you're worried about arena personnel giving you a hard time, you can always make up a yellow sign that says, "Danger! 500,000 Ohms", with a lightning bolt symbol.

The sort of person likely to be frightened off by the original sign is unlikely to know enough to understand your sign anyway. And arena staff probably know enough to laugh.

Considering how often photographers set up remote flash units, you would think that the companies which manufacture them would create some solution for the specific purpose of protecting against theft similar to a laptop lock. In the past I have used a thin wire-lock to rig my camera bag to railings or to the media bench when I walk around and it would be wonderful if there was a small loop on the flash near the shoe mount where you could thread a similar cable-lock through.
While a “high-voltage” sign might be very effective in deterring against theft, I wouldn’t want a client or security guard seeing it and freaking out. If the flash companies don’t ever address this issue, it might be a better idea to post a “danger: radiation” sign near the flash… that will really make people keep their distance.
