In the previous post I talked about the meaning and importance of backup. Now I want to talk about something even more basic; the checklist.
Scenario: You were hired to shoot an event in a distant place. It takes 3 hours to get there by car and so you leave home 4.5 hours before the opening so you won't be so tight in schedule. You get there exactly 3 hours later. The weather is great, the place looks awesome and your client is already there taking care of last minute preparations.
