  • First, decide what risks you are trying to mitigate, and then look for solutions.  For example: Internal hdd failure: keep a copy on external drive (personally, I also have mirrored disks to reduce ...

  • A few years ago, we were touring Cuba, with a guide. We visited a town, can't remember which one, when we came across a group of kids, under tens I think, practising gymnastics in the town square. ...
  • Yes, I would do it within Lightroom for "small" moves. However, for moving folders with laarge numbers of images it's more secure to move them using the operating system file manager and then ...
  • I use Lightroom as my main tool.  Yes, it converts the raw files but it does so much more too. So for me it's not about whether software is free or paid for (and tbh in the scale of things ...
  • Thanks! It's in the main Luangwa river, Nsefu sector

  • It seems straightforward to me! I live in a rural area, and our local alerts often warn of cows or sheep loose on one of he lanes.  Fortunately, the farmer can usually be found and the animals ...
  • Well, it might depend on what you are doing in said portraits :-) One of my conclusions is that I'm not really a photographer.  Yes, I try and make my photos as "good" as possible, but for me what ...
  • Remember the story told of Michael Angelo. One day in his workshop he saw an apprentice looking to sculpt a horse.  The apprentice asked the master for advice, and was told it was simple - just ...
