monday tip : format your memory card!

So, I suck at tutorials, but this is just a friendly reminder to format your memory cards after every project!

This is important for 2 reasons.
I reduces the risk of corruption and the formatting process matches your memory card with your camera's specific operating system! Especially important if you're using the same card in different cameras (I like to have a specific card for each camera, though).

Before formatting your card, make sure you have backed up all your photos!!

To format, simply find the format command in your camera's menu (check in your manual if you are unsure where to find it).  All your photos will be erased from your card, and you'll be ready to start again!
