I stay within the UK and spend most of my time right here, aside from a brief journey overseas as soon as or typically twice a yr.
This Sunday simply gone we switched from GMT to BST, so our clocks went ahead one hour. I up to date my digicam clock to match the brand new time, which is one thing I do each time the clocks change however somebody stated to me that this was a nasty concept and that I ought to simply go away it on GMT/UTC all yr round. I assume that is partly because of GPS monitoring (though I’d usually use my iPhone which mechanically updates it is time, so I must sync my digicam with my cellphone earlier than I start ideally).
I like the thought of updating my digicam so it is on native time wherever I’m on the planet, however after all there’s at all times the potential for forgetting to do that. In the summertime we’re off on Honeymoon and might be in a number of completely different time zones, so the query is ought to I simply make an effort to recollect to replace my clock time as I am going, ought to I simply go away it on GMT/UTC or is there a greater manner?
I’m genuinely fascinated with what different photographers do to sort out this subject, particularly with regard to journey and spending just a few days at a time in several time zones.
I’d additionally wish to know the way folks deal with the metadata when posting pictures on-line because the metadata might point out a photograph was taken on a unique day because of a time zone mismatch. Additionally when reviewing pictures I believe it’s usually helpful to know the occasions they had been taken, particularly with regard to sundown and dawn, so realizing the correct time will be necessary. Do you simply need to manually work it out or is there thought of to be a ‘finest apply’ strategy to coping with this.
Very a lot wanting ahead to studying your responses.
