Quick Tip - Format Your Memory Cards Before a Shoot

      Formatting your memory cards may not be a top priority on your list of things to do before a photo shoot, but it's an important and necessary step in order to maximize the efficiency of them.   Even though you may delete the photos from your memory card, it's still using memory from them and robbing you of the full storage capabilities.  Most, if not all DSLR and I believe even Point&Shoot Cameras offer the option to Format your card in the menu section.  Check your particular Camera's info guide to see how to do it.    On Canon Camera's (Like the T3 I'm currently using)  it's in the menu section under the first yellow tool icon.   Make sure your images are saved somewhere other than the memory card before you format it, as formatting erases all the left over junk left behind.  

This is the memory card I'm currently using:
