Re: Enemy pilots won't wait for you to complete your checklist.

The US military is so dominate they never face enemy Pilots. And all US Military Use Checklists. The ones who dont wont be pilots very long. The Pilots are not using a checklist during active engagement unless it is very specific to a weapon and then the list is usually pretty short, but effective. Sometimes weapons have to armed, targeting data sent, etc. Its not a video game.

This is not the right parallel to use, even if it does make someone feel very macho.

Using and advocating the use of checklists has nothing to do with being macho. On the contrary.

The low-level technical elements of photography are not related to liability for death or loss of expensive classified equipment.

Checklists for photography can simply be about different creative scenarios to consider under different situations. In the end a checklist is ultimately about being reminded of something that you should do or look out for. That has a number of benefits, and in the case of military aircraft is not restricted to simply preserving life and property. It's ultimately about helping you do a better job.

The basis of the artisan craft of photography is the technical sequences one has to apply from habit to support the potential art of photography.

A craftsman isn''t restricted to what he can remember at the time.

It isn't there to mitigate liability.

As I've said, checklists are ultimately about helping you to do a better job.

Photographers are not awarded contracts after showing potential clients checklists.

Obviously, but if a checklist helps that photographer create a better product then that's a good thing for everyone involved.

The photographer's track record is in fact the client's checklist instead.

A track record that can be enhanced through checklists.

A checklist might be tempting for an novice photographer but I am convinced they'll soon bore of it and do things from habit.

Checklists are often best for those that thnink they are too experienced for checklists.
