This evening I’m shooting a homecoming dance and ceremony, was just recently mentioned to me that I would be needed for this event, not giving me much time for preparation… ugh! I’m pretty sure I know what I want to do as far as lighting and equipment goes, but I’ve only shot one other session that was similar (come up, take your photo, next person please...) and that was a grandparents day event back in August. I quickly found out after the session when I got back to start on post that it would be more difficult than I had expected. Figuring out who everyone I had photographed was and matching them up to their name and keeping the forms the school had them fill out in order was nearly impossible and took forever! Since this event is not at the school and is off the property and they don’t really know who comes until they get there, they did not send home forms for the parents to fill out stating who wanted to get their photograph taken. Does anyone have any advice on how I can keep the images I take with my camera more organized so that it doesn’t damper my workflow this time around? I will probably print some type of “sign-in sheet” that I will have people sign as they come up, but I didn’t know if anyone here has had any personal experience with this before. I’m not sure if there is a way to set a starting file number on my D850 and I don’t have it in front of me at the moment but should that be something I should look into? So far what I can think to add to the sign-in sheet is their name, grade/teacher, and signature...? Also is there any other documentation that I need (like a minor release form) in order to preform this event without the problem of being sued? I am afterall taking pictures of high schoolers who are under the age of 18. I was told that with this be in a private school, On the application form by the parents filled out when enrolling their children that they signed a release allowing for the kids pictures to be taken for schools related purposes (I assume for things like yearbook, sports, etc).
