Tip of the Week: Get your pet's attention

People tell me I am lucky because my dog and cat are always posing for me. I have one advice for them: make your own luck. Roxy seems to always listen to me. Even my cat Mya looks to behave like a dog and sit pretty for me. My secret? Read this post ;)

Tip of the Week: Handy Reflectors

You don't need to spend any money to have some handy reflectors. All you need is cardboard and a tape. Take two white cardboard, foamcores or any other white thing that is somewhat thick and tape them together.

Tip of the Week - Backup on Importing

Tip of the Week - Backup on Importing

Another Lightroom import tip this week. Do you know you can backup your photos while importing them? Having multiple backups of your photos is one of the most important thing, especially for one-time events like a wedding. When I come back from a wedding, I can't sleep at night if I don't have three copies of my images. You never know when something can go wrong so be prepared and backup.

One quick way to do it is from the import panel in Lightroom. On the right side of the panel, under File Handling, click on Make a Second Copy To. It is a good idea to select an external drive for the destination. Once the import is complete, you have one copy in your computer and one copy on an external drive that you can bring with you and leave out of the house/office. Before erasing my cards, I will have a third copy of the files somewhere else.
