Memory Matters


We aren’t talking “gray matter” memory here-though that type of memory matters too. We are talking digital camera memory. Digital camera memory is where your image data or photos are stored in your camera.

Most of the newer cameras have limited amounts of internal (sometimes called “on-board” or “built-in”) memory. Nearly all digital cameras rely on media or memory cards for storage. A media card is like re-useable film. Fill it with your images, download the images, and then fill the card again and again. Media cards don’t wear out easily.

To use a media card, insert it into the corresponding slot on your camera. When you take a picture, the camera saves the image data to the media card. When the card is full, it must be emptied or downloaded to your computer’s hard drive. There are several ways to do this. One way is to insert the card into the corresponding slot on the computer. Software does the rest. Another way is to connect the camera to the computer using USB or Firewire technology. The latest method is wireless or Wi-Fi technology-no removing the card from the camera or hooking up cables. At this point in time, only the newest camera models use Wi-Fi.

There are several types of media cards available. Your camera will dictate which type you must use. Compact Flash, SmartMedia, SecureDigital, MultiMedia, Memory Stick and xD Picture cards are the most common. Media cards are available with capacities ranging up to 2 gigabytes (GB).

After your images are transferred to you computer’s hard drive, don’t forget to back up your images to a separate storage device. As reliable as hard drives are, failures do occur. A second internal hard drive, an external hard drive, a Zip disk, a CD or DVD is common back up devices. Web sites are available to store back up images for a small fee.

Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Proverbs 29:18

The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it upon the seas and established it upon the waters.
Psalm 24:1-2

He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains. They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds of the air nest by the waters; they sing among the branches. He waters the mountains from his upper chambers; the earth is satisfied by the fruit of his work.
Psalm 104:10-13

Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
Matthew 6:26

How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number living things both large and small.
Psalm 104:24-25

Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.
Ansel Adams

When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!
Ted Grant

While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.
Dorothea Lange

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Ansel Adams

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.

You don’t take a photograph, you make it.

Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.

Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment.

Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.
Imogen Cunningham

You’ve got to push yourself harder. You’ve got to start looking for pictures nobody else could take. You’ve got to take the tools you have and probe deeper.
William Albert Allard

If I saw something in my viewfinder that looked familiar to me, I would do something to shake it up.
Garry Winogrand

I always thought good photos were like good jokes. If you have to explain it, it just isn’t that good.

Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.
Ansel Adams

It can be a trap of the photographer to think that his or her best pictures were the ones that were hardest to get.
Timothy Allen
