A dude with a DSLR and a Killer eye for shot composition:
I became familiar with SMGLee when I came across his photo coverage of the SHOT show in 2009. In my opinion, SMGLee continues to be one of the few guys that can actually take a picture there worth looking at.
Good to see he’s into video now too, his skills obviously translate quite well. I’m not sure if the above video was actually shot with a DSLR, but it might be. That slow motion looks almost too good though, which makes me think something else was used.
Note to self – Never live anywhere near, or spend any time in the hood:
I had the video on in the background over the last hour. Wow… just wow..
To summarize what you’ll see:
Total disrespect/hate for law enforcement. I’m sure some of them have valid reasons, but it really seems to be rampant across the board.
Terribly unsafe firearm handling. 4 rules? What 4 rules?
Witty rhymes put together to diss their enemies and the police.
Fighting, yelling, swearing you name it… these people are hostile.
I couldn’t imagine growing up in that kind of environment. You’d have to be so careful, and watch your back 24/7… concealed carry and sleeping next to a gun would be a requirement there. Even then you’d probably still not even have a fighting chance in the long run…
I wonder how many of those guys in the video are either dead or in jail? Threatening the police, doing illegal things, and flashing weapons (if you’re a felon) on camera rank up there with the all time stupidest things you could possibly do.
