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!
