My simple tip for remembering my camera battery

November 4, 2012 | By | Comments (6)

I cannot tell you the number of times I have prepared to take a photo only to discover that I have forgotten my battery, because it is still in the charger. To avoid battery-induced frustrations, I now keep the camera in close proximity to the charger, often with the camera strap draped over the top.

Based on the reactions I received to this photo when I posted to Instagram, I am clearly not alone when it comes to leaving my battery behind. Which has me wondering… What simple tip do you have to help you remember things you keep forgetting? Admittedly, I can be a bit distracted, and can use all the advice/ideas I can get!

For those who might be wondering, the strap is from HowardAvenue on Etsy.
