Shutters Inc – episode 201

A couple of weeks ago, I saw this post and it got me thinking about why I (we?) hang on to every image we take. Perhaps as the title suggests, we should ‘keep the best, delete the rest’.

Blake Bodycote asked about backup solutions for his laptop-based Lightroom catalogue.
My suggestions included:

Backup online using any one of a multitude of free ‘drive’ sites like:

Use a paid online backup service like:

And if nothing else, maybe save jpeg copies to an online site?

I mention the absolutely crap-o-matic quality of film scanning at Big W,

plus, spending a day at a Joe McNally workshop.

What’s new?

Filed under: Blog,Joe McNally,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 17:49

Well, for one thing, I’m about to launch a new audio-related podcast called “Nothing to Fear“, which will be a tutorial-type podcast based on the digital audio workstation known as Reaper.

I know this audience is not really interested in that, but I’m just trying to generate a few links into the site, so the google bots will think it’s a page worth indexing. Method to my madness, see?

But while I’m here, I’ll mention that there won’t be an episode of Shutters Inc this week. I DID actually record one, but after I’d finished it, I had to admit to myself that there really wasn’t anything incredibly informative about it. Back in the final days when I was doing Sine Language, I said to myself that I wouldn’t release a podcast just for the sake of releasing something. And it makes sense to continue adopting that attitude to this podcast as well. If there’s nothing to say, then don’t let people download a whole crapload of nothing.

Don’t worry, just because I’m mentioning this now, in the same post as announcing a new audio-related podcast, don’t think I’m going cold on SI. That is most definitely NOT the case, ok? I will definitely be recording an ep next week, as I will have had the pleasure of a day with Joe McNally on Monday (so pumped about that!). Got any questions for Joe? Can’t promise to remember them on the day, but sing out if you have! ๐Ÿ™‚

Alright, onward and upward….
