Check Your Camera Batteries A Day Before
There have been many horror stories about event or wedding photographers who suddenly find themselves in an embarrassing situation while shooting. And that’s all because they run out of power in their camera batteries in the middle of a take. So you might think that natural, right? It happens, yes.
However, the embarrassing part is that the photographer forgot to bring extra batteries or he did bring his spare batteries but they were also out of juice! Yikes! What do you do in that situation? Well, you just better pray that you didn’t forget to bring your camera charger so you can politely ask your clients to take a break while you charge your batteries. But believe it, this is not a situation you would want to be in! So the better way to solve it? Before you go to a shoot, make sure you have all your equipment ready and neatly packed for the shoot the next day. Also, charge all your extra batteries at least 1 day before your scheduled event or wedding photography gig.
Bring Your Extra Hard Drive for Storage
Aside from really checking and double checking your batteries for your cameras, you also have to make sure you have prepared your extra hard drive for storage at the location of your event or shoot. You need to have an extra drive to back up your footage right at the location and not after. Why? Because if you back up right there in the venue of your event or wedding, you can make sure that you have several copies of the footage you need. Then as you continue shooting, you can also see or review how much material you have collected and what else you need to shoot in order to have a very packed video for your clients. This is especially a must for wedding photography events or coverage where you need to shoot not just the bride and the groom but also other close guests and relatives they have over for the occasion.
Get Some Rest
A lot of very passionate photographers work so hard to the point that they only get about 3-4 hours of sleep everyday. But it is so important to remember that your body and mind can work so much better if you have allowed them to rest and get some good night’s sleep. You will be more alert while shooting and easily respond to certain problems and issues on the set better compared to if you only had 3 hours of sleep.
