This photograph of reflections captures a moment from the very beginning of my photography career. At that time, I was experimenting with HDR (High Dynamic Range) and tended to overprocess most of my photos. As a low-budget photographer, I didn’t invest much in equipment back then.
Although I’m not rich now, I have acquired the equipment I desired or needed over time.
One notable change has been in the IT infrastructure. I wanted to re-process this particular photograph because I hold a strong affinity for it. However, when I searched for the RAW image, I discovered that it was stored on a malfunctioning PC.
Fortunately, I have skilled friends who assisted me in recovering the lost photo and all the other data – including this water reflections photo.
IT-Tip: Backup is essential
Following the above mentioned experience, I began prioritizing data backup to prevent potential losses. I now utilize a NAS (Network-Attached Storage) system that automatically backs up my data to the cloud every day. There are various methods to set up this process, including manual copying or automated solutions.
Personally, I prefer automated processes as they require less manual intervention – so I don’t have to remeber doing it.
To ensure reliable and secure storage, I decided to rent storage space from DISO, which serves as an excellent backup solution for all my data.
