Inside the Dome

Reorganizing My Library

So, I’m spending a few days organizing my digital library. Jeez. It’s never easy! Here are some things I am going through:

- My greatest find/purchase of this year is a Thunderbolt Pegasus drive. I bought it off the Apple website (not a freebie)… but, man… it is so awesome. I talk about it at 49:17 on the Hangout Video at

- Here is a screenshot of my increasingly organized Lightroom, thanks to the Pegasus:

- As for my whole workflow, I am going to give a talk here in Austin with Apple… It’s on October 22 at 7 PM. I’ll give more details on that later, if you want to watch. I don’t know if they’ll let me do a live Hangout, but I will try. I’ll give out some free copies of my Digital Workflow ebook from Flatbooks.com

- One quirky thing I am still working out with my Thunderbolt megadrive is that I have two Lightroom libraries (a small one for the road and a big one at home). I guess I am good with that. I just need to get my head around a good system for this. Maybe I just won’t decide and I’ll wait on this new Adobe Carousel thing to see what that’s all about.

- Speaking of that, WHEN will we know more about Adobe Carousel? I just joined their beta… so I will play with it and let you know… assuming they let me talk about it – I will ask.

Daily Photo – Inside the Dome

This beautiful dome was inside one of the side-cloisters in the Forbidden City. I remember spending about five minutes trying to line this up inside the camera. These can be very difficult to re-align in Photoshop. But, luckily, all my preparations paid off and it came out pretty good right out of the camera!

    Looking at this shot makes me want to lie down on the back and shoot for centre whether there are people or no people.Would be very interesting to shoot and see who is looking in or up.Very nice ,every thing in those days was built with no nails just good craftsmanship.

    Hi Trey,its not that we do not support you in buying things, just that lately someone has gone shopping with my wife’s credit card in the states also 4 other friends and family .At the moment we all seem to be so weary as to spend and where to spend. Its so strange as my friend had to change 3 cards in 3 months we now have these things on computer and as soon as there is movement we phone the bank.Life is really getting tough ,also Quantas air lines is continually striking and we fly out in 5 weeks to Beijing lets hope all is well when the time comes, its been a whole year in the planning of it. My daughters final year and this is our treat to her, as she finishes then and will be able to relax and enjoy some travel.

    Interesting shot today – I wonder how I would get on if they let me and my camera loose over there – it seems like the type of place where it’s impossible to take rotten photos – having said that, I would probably manage to create a few stinkers!

    I just organised all of my photos too – everything i’ve taken since 2000 which was no easy task – thankfully I have a collection now that I can look back on and enjoy minus all the garbage that gunks everything up. The streamlined collection now lives on 7 DVD data discs.

    Louis – don’t panic about the strikes, i’m sure it will work out. My last 4 big trips have been threatened by strikes, riots and dodgy aeroplanes in France and a successionb of Icelandic volcano eruptions but we still made it – keep the faith and remember what Jim Morrison said “If you book them they will come!”

    Excellent shot with a deep process ! I love the angles. This is really funny (and weird…), when I saw this picture, I was actually working on a panorama I shoot at the exact same place ! Here’s mine : http://www.flickr.com/photos/58464516@N02/6241796634/

    Nice to see how others organize lightroom but I’m a bit confused. All those collections dedicated to unprocessed files but where do they go after processed?

    Love domes! This is fabulous!

    The pegasus is what I’ve been looking for, I’ll buy it as soon as I come back from my “months long” Indian trip. I can’t wait to finally have thunderbolt disk speed on my Air.

    Did you get the 4 or 6 disks one?
