Today was productive, mainly because I got to take nearly 300 pics. The new compact flash card seems to be working in the D70. I was getting image corruption errors with the old 1GB card occasionally, and the new 2GB card seems to be fine so far.
I got some great pictures of people in their kimono as well as some street action. I enjoy working with people to get portrait although I’m still working on my framing. I really want a second flash now, I think I’m at the point where I could really use another one for creative lighting. I did get some great shots during the magic minute yesterday and they look great.
While I have other hobbies, I have a special love for photography because it’s rewarding.
Hearing, “Oh wow,” after I show someone their picture always makes me smile.
That’s why there’s nothing so unnerving to me as the thought of losing pictures, the tiny slices of time and light that I worked so hard to get. Or alternately, paid zero attention to craftsmanship and took anyway. Either way they’re still important.
Which reminds me it’s time to do a backup of this machine.
And everyone, please do a back up of your computer.
