This last week has been a very annoying photography week for me. First of all…the lens that came with my Canon Rebel is not wanting to auto focus and so it works only 1/2 of the time when set to auto focus. It took me a while to figure out that this is why the lens was so inconsistent. My portrait lens works fine. And while I love it, it is fairly limiting when its your only lens.
So then on Friday my camera and iphoto suddenly refused to talk to one another anymore. So I ended up deleting an entire card of pics b/c we were headed to the parkway and I wanted to use my camera. Finally this morning I tried something new and it turns out that Picasa and my camera are fast friends and that’s great. However, I haven’t used Picasa before so I’ve got a bit to learn before this all makes sense to me. I may end up liking it better…but for now I’m trying to figure out what my plan is.
We have a desktop and a laptop and the number of pictures I was downloading was too heavy a load for the laptop, but that’s what I’ve been primarily using for the last year. I may have to make a switch to using the desktop for all photo work. (We do have a hard drive and I have been backing up every few months.)
So, here are my questions. First of all, what camera are you using? Secondly, what photo sorting programs are you using and what is your organizing system?
(and don’t you love how a post with the word “picture” in the title twice doesn’t actually have any pictures? I’ll post more pictures soon…)
