Maintenance of the Photography System
Not surprisingly, a system designed for use by many users is particularly susceptible to abuse and neglect. Proper maintenance of a photog-raphy system is a daily task that is less likely to be neglected if assigned to one person. This person should be responsible for: maintaining clean lenses and viewfinders as well as a fresh supply of film; checking that the cameras are loaded with film; and checking that the film is delivered for processing in a timely fashion. There is nothing worse than spending valuable time in photographing an important specimen and afterward finding out that there was no film in the camera!
