My son loves to paintball, and I need to stay skilled at my tactical photography when not deployed. So the win-win scenario for us is for me to photograph him in the midst of “battle.”
We have found a place in Atlanta that has a number of fields and super fun staff. They are also strict on safety, which is a huge bonus for the mom in me. There is no need for major injuries in training battles, none at all. Of course, all paintball wars come with a certain amount of welts, bruises and bumps – even for the photographer. But hey, that is all part of my training-learning to stay out of the line of fire, moving quick and being aware of your surroundings at all times.
So in honor of the Daily Post’s Weekly Photography Challenge on Boundaries, enjoy these shots from “war.”
