Photography Tips Series: Storage and Backup
You’ve got the right gear, you’ve learned the basics to make a great photo with the perfect exposure and nailed composition. The next step is just as important; welcome to the Photography Tips Series: Storage and Backup.
If you have a professional camera with dual card slots, you have automatically made your fist back up. But even if you do, the steps that I am going to give you need to be done as well. If you only have one card slot, same steps, just a little bit more important because you haven’t backed it up in any way.
I have a lot of memories from when I was a kid involving spiders. But I have no recollection of ever overreacting to them, I mean I didn’t like them but I wasn’t exactly afraid of them like if my life was in danger. No phobia.
Now, I do.
One day I went with my mom and my cousin to visit some family up north, and when we were at the airport coming back home, we discovered that there were some issues with our luggage.
It was late at night and I was really tired so while my mom was arguing with the airport staff about the luggage, I fell asleep on the floor with my cousin.
When all of it was sorted out, my mom woke me up and I noticed that I had like a mosquito bite in the index finger of my right hand, but I didn’t give it any importance whatsoever because I mean, it was a mosquito bite.
Until we realized it was not.
This is the collection I made and sent them. It was part of the first of two trials to get the job.
Working For a Big Fashion Company
In my last semester of university, I was fortunate enough to get contacted by a human resource member of Stradivarius. Which for those of you who don’t know is one of the many fashion labels of Inditex Group (Zara, Oysho, Bershka, Pull & Bear, Zara Home, Massimo Dutti, Lefties, etc), but of course, you do know.
They told me they were interested in me participating in an internal company project, that is basically talent scouting and if they liked me and I passed the test, I would get a contract for 6 months.
I passed that test and worked there for 6 months.
It wasn’t a lot of time, but it was enough for me to get a real glimpse of what it’s really like working for a big fashion company.
