One of the things I have realized that makes my shoots go smoothly is getting enough sleep. Making sure I have all my gear ready and importantly not having everything in my camera bag in disarray.
You’d think I would learn from past mistakes, I do but one that keeps me getting into trouble is not keeping all my gear in one spot (i.e.: lenses not in camera bag, memory card holder misplaced, etc).
It’s laziness that needs to stop and it’s one of my New Years resolutions!
So a bit of advice, remember to charge your battieres, make sure you have lenses ready to clean before shoot, memory cards ready for images and get enough sleep before hand and scout your shoot so find the best places to take photographs!
