When you first walk into a camera shop, the selection can be overwhelming. Which ones do you look at? What features do you want? Should you consider a point and shoot, a D-SLR, or a mirrorless camera? Should you throw your hands up in despair and go home? No. Not to the last bit, anyway.

It’s Archiving Month at Rockbrook Camera, and what better time than to discuss how you work with your day-to-day memory cards!
You’ve backed up your photographs to your computer, an external hard drive, DVD, jump drive, prints, online backup, card catalog, or whatever other filing system you have devised–and now you’re ready to clear your card and start over. What is the best way to do it? There are a couple of options right on your camera: erasing and formatting. Both have their benefits, and both have their drawbacks.
For this week’s #weekendphotoproject, we’re focusing on photography reflections.
