Of dirty words, learning opportunities, and laziness…

So after my last post when I was out shooting with the Lensbaby Control Freak, I did a few other projects shooting the ISS as it did a flyby.  I took a long duration shot, a time-lapse, and a video, then capturing the super moon on a different night.  That’s when the fun started.

Admittedly, I was a bit lazy and hadn’t uploaded my images from the shoots after the Lensbaby fun. When I tried, I found out I was having some serious computer issues.  General misbehaving, not recognizing my external drive that I keep my image library on, and the usual crashes with Lightroom and Photoshop (You will learn that I am not a huge LR/PS fan, but they seem to be a necessary evil).

Well, after several days of fussing and swearing, I was finally able to get everything recovered as best possible.  I had been somewhat lazy this summer in my library backups as I haven’t been shooting quite as much due to focusing on online training.  And even though I didn’t seem to lose anything, it is still a lesson learned.  I may look into some automated software to help with the backup process, but seeing that my laptop is aging, I am not sure how much more I want to invest in  it at this point.  (Yes, I realize that seems odd as failing hardware is a pretty darn good excuse for stepping up on the backup thing!)

This is also why I have been a little quiet here as I was preoccupied with other things.  At least I now have quite a bit to work on and post about!  I am nearly done with the final backup and will be editing later this afternoon…

I would also like to thank all those who have visited my page and subscribed!  I appreciate the encouragement!  Please, if you like what you see, share/tweet/etc!
