Top 10 Photos: Vote for Your Favorite Showers Photo


In our third Top 10 Photos post, I wanted to do an image search on the word "showers." With springtime and April upon us, photographers are inspired by images of rainwater and other types of showers. I wanted to find the 10 best - in my opinion - photographs that incorporated some aspect of showers in the image. I've not put these 10 in any particular order - that task is up to you. Use the survey at the end of the post to vote for your favorite "Showers" image. Thanks for voting and check back soon for another Top 10 Photos vote!

With St. Patrick's Day coming up, photographers are obsessed with capturing images that show the wearing of the green, green beer, anything Irish, etc. But I wanted to find the 10 best - in my opinion - photographs that incorporated some aspect of green in the image. I've not put these 10 in any particular order - that task is up to you. Use the survey at the end of the post to vote for your favorite "Green" image.

    Preshoot Checklist

    This should be a slow, deliberate ritual that takes place the day before your shoot while you are not rushed, or distracted.  By accomplishing this ahead of time, you can focus on the shoot and not have to worry about forgetting anything, or making a hurried decision.  

    • Charge all camera batteries, rechargeable batteries for accessories, and any necessary electronic devices.  Be sure to include extra batteries as well.
    • Clean all lenses, filters, and cameras with microfiber cloths.
    • Make sure all memory cards have been formatted completely.  
    • Adjust all camera settings to default shooting selections.  ie: RAW, lowest ISO, Auto White Balance, Burst Mode, Spot Meter.
    • Wipe any sand or grit from tripod and light stands. Open and close to make sure they are operating smoothly.
    • Test all accessories including umbrellas, reflectors, clamps, pocket wizards, and flash.
    • Prepare any additional materials like gaffer tape, allen keys, rubber bands, pens, sharpie markers, business cards, and a small first aid kit.
    • Pack all required gear needed for shoot while double checking that all necessary gear is accounted for.
