raygen when did you last get your eyes checked?
my bet is you're short sighted in one eye
Rediscovered Mars Volta after 5 years.
high post processing is so much fun
just saw this on Facebook, perfection
the weird sexual moves you could do with that
my hard drive crashed. i've lost every single photo i've ever taken.
So losing my drive with all my photos would initially suck, but then I'd realise that it isn't as important as it superficially appears, because all my final edits will be on flickr anyway.
Heh, there's no data recovery services around town and I've lost lots of important data too. Right now my best bet is a day old deleted backup.
Flickr should let you upload the RAW files alongside the images. Then it could bill itself as an archival tool alongside being a photo-sharing network. Give you download all options and the like. I would gladly pay for this.
Or you could just pay to upload your data to an actual backup service
I dump everything on two external hard drives. One is the working drive which will be actively accessed and moved around. The other one is simply a copy of the other, not to be used or moved unless backing up photos to it.
Seeing as terabytes of external hard drive space is pretty cheap now, it's a pretty viable method of photo storage.
Why do you guys think you have to be near-/shortsighted to do this? Anyone can do it. It's just a matter of being able to focus your eyes - both - you have muscles around your eye. Use them.
I noticed its easier if you shut one eye, stops you getting two different images being blurred together
yeah when I do it I feel like i'm actually contracting a muscle, similar to when crossing eyes
heading out to India in august, fuck ye.
On that note what do you guys will be better, one big (capacity) CF card or a few smaller ones?
take a laptop so you can offload all your photos
smaller ones mate, if you have one big one and lose it then everything is gone!
if you have more smaller ones you have more to lose! the mystery goes on
keep a big card in the camera and never let that motherfucker out of your hand?
The laptop idea might work if this bad one, well, works!
Currently it has Ubuntu One on it, seems to work alright so far. Maybe I can post a few every so often.
I really wish Facebook would understand that a link to a Flickr picture is a picture, and that when you posted it it showed it as a real picture and when you clicked on it it loaded the picture on it's lightbox thingy instead of redirecting people to the flickr page.
I can't stand how much Facebook compresses and resizes my stuff, yet I want my friends to see my pictures and 70% don't have a Flickr and won't click on the link because, hey, it's a link and not a picture you can just view on lightbox.
