There is a lot of discussion about how to photograph responsibly lately. But file management is also extremely important. I relied very heavily on this sheet above for keeping my cameras and files organized. I also, by labeling my cards, was able to keep the photos taken by my second shooter identified and separate, important if there is a dispute over who took that award winning image.
Lastly, the sheet above can really protect you if you get sued over lost images. A judge will understand that mistakes happen, and that with such diligent record keeping of your image files, it will show that you are anything but negligent.
Gary, I'm sure you're shocked/amused/not surprised that this has only two, nay three comments compared to the spray n pray and pray n market posts. And yet the process required by this preflight checklist is such a big deal for the long term week in week out success of a business occupied by so many right brainers. Ten years ago took one of your early Digital Intensive classes and being an odd mix of both left/right I implemented a flow/process that the checklist seemed to call for ..... but didn't use the checklist itself. Of course!! That 2% in the class rule.
Thanks for keeping your Xanga crowd fed now and then .... i find too much background noise on facebook sometimes to visit regularly. does that make me grumpy?
