Holidays and no post’s update.

Posted by mervfrench on December 30, 2008

Hello to anyone who reads this.  We are off on holidays, going south to Fletcherville for a few weeks.

About the no post’s (does anyone care!!), and to explain the hard drive situation. I had 2 x 250 gig external hard drives with thousands  of pictures on them. I upgraded to a 750gig ext HD and transferred everything onto it , with the idea of getting a second 750 HD and backing up to it , well getting the second HD didn’t happen in a hurry and the 6 month old LACIE 750 gig HD crashed taking everything with it.  I found someone to check it out and it seems that the data should be able to be recovered and I can get it back after the holiday, PHEW!!! thats a relief.  I’m not sure what any of you use for backup but have a good look at it and get a plan to double it up as the thought of losing all your work is not a good one , believe me.  Do a search on reliable External drives as well, as you get what you pay for. 

Anyway to the 2 readers of this, see you soon, I might even get a bit serious about posting when I get back and put up something worth while.

Sorry about no post’s

Posted by mervfrench on December 20, 2008

I had intended to post more  often lately but at the moment I have a major issue with an ext. harddrive  that is causing a bit of grief. 

Hopefully I will get it sorted very soon. Stay tuned.

I did a shoot for the Hoodoo Guru’s on Saturday night ( anyone remember them ). These are taken with Canon 50mm 1.8 ( the plastic fantastic $100 lens ) and 24-70 2.8, no flash 1000 ISO.  The Hoodoo’s were great…..but you had to be there.HD4HD5HD6HD7

BIKES, BIKES ,BIKES.

Posted by mervfrench on December 2, 2008

I spent the weekend shooting pics for Australian Dirtbike Mag at the Northam Motorcycle Festival.

Weather was great and the crowd was huge. Unfortunatly I can only post some of the rejects as the pics belong to ADB until they publish,that’s part of the deal, but this will give you an idea as to what it was like. A real REV HEAD weekend
