09/24/06: The Importance of Checklists

When I go out to shoot a wedding or other event, I typically go thru a checklist of items that I'll need for that event. The list includes things to do (such as clean sensors / lenses) and things to take (back-up equipment, spare batteries, etc.). This weekend I went to shoot a high school reunion group photo and didn't use my normal checklist. Of course I forgot something -- my umbrellas for the flash units -- but I was able to use a couple of omni-bounce light modifiers to ensure that I had nice soft light. So if you are doing photography for hire, or you are just planning a special photo shoot for whatever occasion, be sure to make a check list to prepare for your shoot!
