When I started barely diving back into concert photography last year, I decided to try out editing on the go. I was well aware of the Three Song Rule, so I wanted to make the most use of my time by beginning the early stages of the editing process. This ended up cutting my editing time significantly with only making a few small changes on the computer when I needed to double check everything.
This Apple Lightning to SD Card Reader (Android users, here’s yours!) has been such a great tool for me! While I’m trying to figure out good areas to shoot from within the crowd, I simply used this card reader and hooked it up to my phone. This helped me see exactly where I could improve my focus and angles from, and I was able to figure out exactly what pictures to keep and what to free up on my camera.
My other favorite thing about using the SD Card Reader on my phone is that I already have a favorite iPhone preset app that I use for my social media images, so with it I’m able to begin editing my images the way I want and work on the slightly more complicated edits once I’m home. This SD Card Reader is also perfect if you have Lightroom CC on mobile. If you’re pressed for storage, you can easily transfer all of your images to the Creative Cloud and have them ready for you by the time you get on your computer to finalize edits.
Do you use an SD Card Reader? What do you like (or dislike) about it?
