    can you recommend a good online hosting place for storing pics as a backup?

    #8 has to be “chimping instead of looking at the subject.” See page 68 of Joe McNally’s book, The Moment it Clicks. As Joe says, “You can miss a lot of moments with your head stuck in your LCD. Checking what just went on is a surefire ticket to missing what’s about to go on.”

    Re: bad habit #5 - you might want to look at some kind of Digital Asset Management solution. Personally I love Lightroom to pieces, but there are plenty of other options to try. It's an additional expense at the outset, but I've found that it really pays for itself pretty quickly in terms of time saved organizing all my files. Now I can let the software take care of organizing everything in a tidy and logical manner at import time, and I can spend my time on the more productive aspects of editing, processing and exporting to customers.

    Plus, Lightroom does a much better job of keeping things organized than I ever would, even if I had the time to do it. ;)

    I found this book to be highly enlightening on the whole asset management front:

    The DAM Book: Digital Asset Management for Photographers

    ... and then I read some more, and discover you're already using Lightroom. Never mind then!

    Still, that is a DAM good book...

    Actually, that was one of the first books I bought when I decided to go pro!!! Thanks for the recommendation and even with Lightroom it is good to have some organizational foundations.

    This is no longer my active email address. Email sent to the account is forwarded to my new address but I encourage you to update your address book. Im using a less spam friendly email address now as this provider tends to have problems with accounts getting hacked quite frequently and I get a lot of spam on this domain too.
