There are certain things that work in a way we don’t understand. Or rather, we don’t have time to understand. We just think that’s how things are since that seems to be what most people believe. But such notion is unacceptable for a professional, given that you have to handle files properly and know what to do if something happens.
For example, can you still use a memory card that got dipped into the water for a few hours? What will you do if this happens? These are busted myths of wedding photography Yorkshire.
Wet memory cards aren’t usable
The memory card is of solid material. Its memory is also solid and requires a reader to function. Thus, getting it wet isn’t going to do a thing to the card. As long as you dry the card before using, you’ll be able to read the files just fine.
It’s true that there are some people only knew this after going through the actual incident. But without having to do that, you can be sure that it’ll work after knowing this fact. No need to fret or give up too quick or even be too worried to plug it in (in fear of ruining the computer or card reader, but this is also unfounded).
Memory cards can be used in multiple cameras
Theoretically, yes, memory cards can be plugged in multiple cameras, but I wouldn’t do that and neither should you. Especially if the cameras are of different brands, you’ll potentially screw yourself over this because the files get corrupted easily like this.
A wedding photography Yorkshire provider, www.bohochicweddings.co.uk helps explain this.
Each manufacturer will create a different pathway in the memory card. Assuming that the memory card is only used in that camera, whenever you take pictures, it will be written in the same place. But if a different pathway is created, it’ll overlap and potentially tries to screw the other one. The more cameras you plug it in, the bigger are the chances that all the pictures cannot be read.
Insurance isn’t mandatory
Well, there’s definitely no regulation saying that if you want to become a wedding photographer, you have to take out an insurance. But it’s definitely something that’s similar to if you want to become a professional and committed, you might as well see insurance as something that’s bundled together. Insurance is a safety measure for you, wedding venue owners and your clients.
Insurance can protect us all from damages, loss and cover the necessary cost to keep the photography business running. Most companies will allow you a certain number of claim within a range of years. Clients also want to make sure that their wedding photographer is pretty dedicated enough to have a ‘safety net’ themselves.
Professional needs to have the newest camera
This isn’t true. As long as your camera is decent enough to show a great quality picture in the printed version. This is equal to Canon Mark III. However, it’s going to be a great thing if you can afford a newer model.
High-quality equipment is a must, but it’s not the same as buying the new latest version everytime it comes out. As long as it’s good enough and you can get yourself comfortable with using it, that’s it. That’s all you need to become a professional in wedding photography Yorkshire.
