Photography Tips and Tricks - 45

October 25, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

This tip is likely buried in one of my longer posts but will break it out here to give it more attention.  As you purchase more cards be sure to write the purchase date on the card with ink.  Cards don't last forever and if you are going on an important shoot, you may want a fresh card.

In addition, if my shoot is really important I don't want a brand new never-used card or a really old card.  I feel both are just as vulnerable to failure.  So, I would like to have a card that has been through a few cycles of taking photos and the workflow of removing and formatting the card. 

A memory card will last anywhere from 0 days to 10 years or more.  Other than accidental damage, the most likely time for failure is when it is brand new or near its end of life. 

Sorry for the longer tip.

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
