The Photo Idea List & Schedule

At work I live by the project schedule, and that spawns various lists - with items that need to be worked off. Perhaps that's why I have somewhat resisted making a list for my photography ideas. That said, I have had ideas that would work best at certain times of the year - and those times have come and gone, only with the idea to resurface after the time-frame has passed - thus another missed opportunity.

So, I was sitting here in front of my PC and I finally opened up Excel - well a spreadsheet application and started making a list. Actually a couple of lists. One by month. Another by event / season or ????? For instance -
  • Shooting the Milky Way - I have found is best in February through July - because of its position (well at least in the northern hemisphere).
  • I wanted to do some more shooting of the Sky Harbor airport - basically with the planes in final approach coming in overhead - best done in winter when the sun goes down early, so that you have a nice dark sky during the evening peak take off / landing time at 7 - 8 pm.
  • I have come across some shots I want when the sun or moon (or lack of) are in certain positions - and that forces certain dates or a set of dates,
So, with the lists - the framework made, I have started populating them with the ideas that I have remembered - so far.
