My heart always skips a little when I read on a forum about someone who lost images from a wedding. Usually, the problem isn’t with the CF card or the equipment, it’s with the photographer’s system for downloading cards to the computer. It’s not too hard to get confused and overlook a card when downloading CF cards after a wedding. Usually the photographer doesn’t realize this until weeks later though at which point the card has already been overwritten and the data is irrecoverable.
But, wait, there’s a solution! This video shows my process for making sure that everything you’ve shot safely makes it onto your computer. The last thing you ever want to do is tell a client that you lost their wedding photos so here’s a little help.
