Either you are a professional photographer or you simply love taking photos with your phone, you must know that the outcome of a photo has nothing to do with the process of taking it. Photographers put themselves to great discomfort and sometimes danger in order to take the perfect picture. When we see the final result we can’t imagine the kind of effort that the photographer put in, because we can’t see anything but the people portrayed. This is why it is always funny to look at what we call the ‘behind the scenes’ photos and learn the truth about how they were taken.
