    Sorry, it took so long, took this photo then accidentally erased sd card…but here is the photo. It is not the right quality I would have liked (big mistake)

    In order to avoid memory card catastrophes you need to develop a routine. My routing is that whenever I come back from a shoot I offload all of my images and back them up. I think immediately put the card back in the camera and format it right away. I also make sure the camera is reset to mostly some default settings and that it has a charged battery. That way be definition my camera is always ready to be used no matter what.

    Also if there is every any doubt whether you should format a card the answer is no, don’t format it. You’d be better off putting in another card than erasing images even if you have to stop and buy another memory card!

    There are a few minor notes for this image. For one, the image is quite a bit underexposed.

    Also compositionally the image isn’t ideal because there is a lack of lead room and the subject has it’s hand and foot amputated on the right side of the frame. I would like you to re-read the assignment and re-shoot this as it doens’t appear much thought or effort went into this image. In particular check out the portion on amputation.

    Hopefully this is not too harsh but this lesson is absolutely essential to making better photographs.

    Thank you.
