"After Every Shoot" - Digital Photography Podcast 125


Be sure to download the free reference card that you can print on a standard 4 x 6 sheet of photo paper and carry in your camera bag. The card, titled, "After Every Shoot," lists the 10 reminders that you need to pay attention to at the close of each session.

In this podcast, I go over every point on the list. Once you finish listening, download the Jpeg image below and print it on a sheet of standard 4 x 6 photo paper. For best results, print in "portrait" mode (vertically aligned paper), center the image, and scale to fit (see illustration above for settings). You'll then have a handy reminder card that you can carry around. Print as many as you like and share with friends too.


You can add your own notes to the back of the card, use it to shade the lens on bright days, or fan yourself if it gets too hot while you're on location. It's also the perfect bookmark for your copy of The Digital Photography Companion. So many uses for this handy freebie.

On the podcast on iTunes, I can find no link to download the reference card. It would help to have it on your website.

Two more my wife and I have been bitten by:

11. Set autofocus to On.
12. Set image stabilization to On.

Can you provide a PDF of this instead, so that scaling it to 4x6 will avoid jaggies?

I test printed several copies of the "After Every Shoot" graphic at the high quality settings on my printer, and it looks fine. It is a reference card after all :)


I see your card mentions setting the ISO back to 100. Why 100 instead of "Auto"?
