Long break

Published May 8th, 2013

Well ints been a long time since I posted on here..over a year and a half. To be honest I forgot it was even on here.

Whats changed in this time with me?

After my last post i got a job a few moths later, back into my old line off work. Sadly this was not what I wanted to do anymore, but my wife wanted to return to her career after having our two daughters so i again left work after around 3 months,when she returned to work.

So for the past year I've been the house wife(husband), this hasn't allowed me much free personal time to shoot due to looking after the two kids under 5 and keeping the house in order.

We have taken two more trips to shanghai since my last once in august last year(2012) and have just returned last week for the latest trip. Both of these were 3 week trips which did allow me to do quite a lot of shooting as we could leave the kids with my wife's family.

Shanghai is a great place to visit and I recommend you do if you can.

Ive also changed camera twice I decided ...

19/07/2011-system failure

Published July 19th, 2011

Yesterday my laptop decided to give up. I thought that i moved everything needed including all my photos and lightroom info to the D drive before i factory restored the laptop.

Seems i was wrong,all my photos that have been edited and my Raw files were all there but my lightroom catalogue was corrupted.

Meaning all the info from my edited photos was lost,this is abit annoying as if i wanted to just tweek any off them this isnt possible now and im not sure i could re-edit them the same again even if i tryed :(.

Well you live and learn,my light room catalogue will be getting backed up straight to my D drive from now on.

By christmas i hope to have a new computer just for editing/working on and some extra storage to store all my Raw files,as my D drive is prity much full already aswell as my 1 external drive....running out of space..............ahhhhhhhhhh.
