I have mentioned what had happened to these photos before but I want to explain again and explain how was able to still work with them.
So this particular weekend we were shooting T’s Calendar. It was a weekend that I will never forget because, I got the news that I had lost a good friend right before we got to Palm Springs. Despite all that going on, I was still able to work through it for Tianna and the rest of the crew. I guess my mind must have been somewhere else tho, because I kept dumping my cards onto the same folder and after the 10,000 mark they began to over right them selfs. It was a huge mistake. I felt even worse than I was already feeling, but the good news is that I only lost 300 files out of the 12,000+ that I had shot that weekend.
Still in those 300 their were some good ones so what I did was go through my Lightroom catalog and screenshot the previews, then I would upload the screenshots to Lightroom and color correct those. Not something that I would recommend because the quality is not as good and Lightroom reads RAW images way better. But still, since these photos are just for web use and not print, the low res files did ok.
2 More Tuesdays after this.
