So, the last back up I ran for the computer was at the tail end of June. I wasn’t off for the summer yet. Since school let out, I’ve been going out at least once a week on my little photo excursions. There are a ton of new pictures; stuff that I am incredibly proud of. I crashed my laptop this week. I spent twenty-four hours trying to breath life back into it. Don’t ask me what I did, I’m not really sure. I had to restore it from the last back up I did. I lost every picture that I had taken and edited since the end of June. I nearly cried.
The bright side is that I’ve been posting everything. Facebook and this blog have those pictures, but they are in much smaller versions than the originals and not necessarily large enough to print from. I also don’t erase my memory card, so I do in fact have the raw images from all the shoots, but none of the editing I did.
I’ve decided to re-edit a lot of them, so be prepared for some repeats. I have a few interesting techniques and programs for tone mapping that I’ve been playing with, so they might be repeats, but I doubt I’ll edit them the same way.
