Number 10

This is a shot that some might have seen already. I put this up on my very first photoblog before I came to shutterchance, about almost 2 years ago. I've been meaning to put it up again but I keep forgetting where I stored it.

Speaking of storage, can anyone advice me on the best way to store my images, at the moment I'm using 2 LaCie Porshe external hard drives and they are both almost full. I need to back up my commercial work too but I don't know of any streamlining methods in doing so....so if anyone has any idea please share.

Superb photo Jide. Haven't got a clue about your storage problems mate, I have not reached that stage just yet - my hard drives keep crashing and taking all my photos with them sad I have to get around to getting into the habit of storing on CD. That's a difficult one for you though. If I do come across a solution for you, I will let you know. Have a great Sunday. Kind regards, Neil.

Yup remember this one, lovely shot then and lovely shot now grin

As for storing your images, you already doing it, I have 4 external hard drives and and hopefully when I get the MAC pro more space will be available for backup, (going to use 2 750GB hard drives solely for backup), but for now, my advice and what I intend to do is also back up all my images unto DVD, yes it will take a lot of time but at the end of the day, worth it :d

lovely, very moody and very well presented...
Yes, this is one to be proud of! Lovely composition and I really like the tones. (:o)

Suby is right Jide, I have the same setup that he has but with a little more storage, you need to raid your drives then select one that you can take off line. the off line drive will house your RAW files and write to DVD the same files as TIFF it's the only way at the moment to insure you never loose you data, but please don't forget to add all of the metadata that you can and yes this can be automated if your using a Mac.

This is a short term fix Jide, Blue Ray will be a more affordable way to do this soon but you can't do any of it without the metadata.
