Before the Shoot ------------------------ - Charge battery in the camera, spare in the bag - Empty memory card in the camera, spare in the bag - Camera set to shoot raw - Picture size to large - Picture control to your preference (neutral is mine) - ISO set to desired value, usually 100 - Camera in right mode (aperture priority or manual) - Shutter release set to your preference (single or mirror up) During the Shoot ------------------------ - Once composition is set, lock down tripod legs, ballhead, and camera plate - Check focus and depth of field - Before each shot inspect lens and filters for dust or water drops - After each shot review your histogram and highlight warning, adjust exposure or bracket if necessary - Check the corners and edges of each shot for distracting elements or important elements that are cut off - Check for lens flare - Bracket a few shots for white balance - If shoot moving objects, try different shutter speeds
