06/04/06: Don't get caught with your card full!

Don't get caught with your card full!

With digital rapidly taking over as the preferred method of photography, it's easy to develop some bad habits. Back when everyone was shooting film, you generally had a good idea of how close to the end of a roll you were. Sure, sometimes you were caught off guard...but most often you knew when you were getting close to 24 or 36 exposures. Now, with digital and ever-expanding removable media card sizes, it's easy to get complacent and forget about how close to a full card you are getting.

Watch your cards -- be aware of how many shots you have left. If you are about to shoot images of a kiss during a wedding, a child batting for the first time in a little league game, a grandparent blowing out candles on a 90th birthday cake -- be sure you aren't in a situation where you don't have room on the card to capture a priceless memory. It sounds like common sense...but, believe me, even pros get caught with their cards full from time to time!
