    We haven't taken a trip in a while so there's really nothing exciting to show. But we've been upgrading our equipment since my wife has left her job and started doing photography for a living. Our next big trip won't be until fall of next year. Until then, it's babies, families, and pet portraits.

    Went backpacking two weekends ago and ended up camping at the lower and upper falls on Canyon Creek. Really awesome trip jam packed with beautiful scenery. I highly recommend it as a long weekend trip, could probably stretch it out more too.

    It looks like Mars, where is that?
    Thanks. I'd guess Arizona, but I don't totally recall. I went to Las Vegas twice and had a layover in Phoenix on only one of the trips. I believe it was that one, but can't be certain. So most likely it is somewhere not far from Nevada or Arizona, as it wasn't too long into the flight, with the ultimate destination being in the direction of Florida.

    To the original poster's question, what really helped me out was youtube. Learning the basics and feeding my excitement for photography.

    Here's some good ones as there are a lot of crappy ones out there:

    Karl Taylor
    FroKnowsFoto
    Chase Jarvis
    Zack Arias
    DigitalRev - The Top Gear of photography

    Edit: I forgot to mention to look for youtube videos where they critique user submitted photos. SLR Lounge has a long running series on youtube. This is a lot more effective after getting the basics down.

    ^Those are gorgeous.

    EDIT: Some super-edited iPhone shots flying over Nevada. Not my usual camera or situation, but I'm enjoying the transformations, nonetheless.

    Another page with no photos!

    How about some old stuff from Sedona, AZ

    Thanks much - to both of you. What I want is to back up all my changes, while still preserving the original RAW file (which is what the xmp file is for, I think). Ideally, I'd do it in such a way that if I were to switch computers, I could just copy the raw + xmp files over to the new computer, and access my old raw files, and my old changes and labels, without any fuss. I'll look at the link and the videos to confirm that I can do that. Thanks.
    How about a 2 bay NAS with RAID 1 capability? Access to the files from any computer and better backup reliability then a standard external drive. Will cost you though. $500~ + the cost of 2 HDD.

    Another option would be to get all your files on that external drive, and work exclusively on that drive. Just add the drive to your LR catalog. If you switch computers, just add the drive to your catalog again. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't know of a reason (other than working speed) that you need to work off of your computer's internal drive. I'd still advocate having another drive dedicated to backup, but you could also have a drive dedicated to your photos. Just an idea for thought.

    Very nice, [MENTION=6764]thedrake[/MENTION]! Let me see if I can round up a few. I used to maintain a personal site for this stuff, but I've never used flickr very much.
