I have some trouble choosing what to take, even for assignments. It can be a bit daunting when there are too many choices. But once I commit, I make it work. Naturally, I bring appropriate gear, and have yet to be unable to do a job or have a jaunt compromised.
Before going, I try to have a plan of what I'm intending to shoot, so that keeps things controllable.
I've got a shoot coming up, and all I've been told is: a solar panel array on top of a parking structure, with a vehicle being charged, with the noonday sun in the picture (! ?) -- and I've never seen the location! Ha-ha! Good luck, and a prayer might be handy. It might be a disaster, stay tuned. I'll probably take 15 FE, 16-35LII, 24-105L, a couple primes like 24 TS-E/50 Macro, maybe the 28-300L. A 580EX II flash with cord (just in case) and the big Manfrotto 3051 tripod. That's more than I'd usually take, but I'll have the car nearby at all times.
It's really is a matter of knowing what limitations I can accept and take the minimum gear to accomplish that.
