Pre-Shoot Checklist Infographic

PreShoot Checklist Infographic

Checklists are always handy to have and help to limit the reams of notes we use to try to remember everything.

This infographic provides an easy to read reference to help you remember:

  • Your gear needs
  • Things to remember regarding Logistics and Location, and
  • Personal things to remember. (If you have ever been to a newborn shoot where little Johnny just couldn’t hold it in, you will be grateful for these reminders)

I don’t think any of us has ever gone to a shoot and didn’t end up shaking our heads in disbelief about what we have forgotten. We hope that this infographic will help limit these times.

Referred to by Frye as the “Exposure Triangle”, he covers the basic controls of exposure: shutter speed, aperture and ISO. He also teaches the reader how to select from the camera’s various metering and exposure modes, and to make educated decisions using digital tools like the histogram.

We received the following press release yesterday from Foto Distributors (the official distributors for Nikon in South Africa). I decided not to post it right after receiving it; concerned that it may perhaps send out the wrong message, even though it is done with good intentions. I have however decided to share my views on the topic and would appreciate your feedback.
