Today, there were two Canon workshops.
The first one was about Synology, which is a storage device that helps you store many photographs so that you will never lose anymore photographs by accident. You can also share and backup your photographs on Synology NAS. The software was founded in 2000 and it is use-friendly. NAS stands for Network Attached Storage device. It connects to a router and it creates its own server, similar to a private Cloud. You can use it anywhere and anytime, especially perfect for travelers who need to access photos from a remote location. You just go on the internet, connect with your Synology NAS device at home, and retrieve the photos that you need. It also enables file sharing with other people’s computers.
Off-Site Backup involves Cloud Server or Off-Site 2nd NAS.
RAID is not a backup device, but it works with a USB device.
DSM is DiskStation Manager software to manage data.
The 3-2-1 Backup Strategy involves 3 copies, 2 separate copies, on 1 device
It all starts with a camera. After you take photos, you connect to Cloud, and then you upload to your computer. Then, you set up NAS. You can get a 2nd NAS for more privacy, or use a Cloud Service with 1 NAS device.
There are 3 different sizes, small, medium and large, and the small one costs $299.
The 2nd workshop was about photography. Photographer Erin Babnik talked about photographing creative landscapes, as she displayed some of her cool photographs.
A professional, creative and artistic photographer should have 7 Virtues:
- Speed involves staying fit and exercising, working through ideas quickly, thinking fast, always learning via books, museums, and life in general, and trying different types of photography.
- Curiosity involves going places that are different and unusual or the route less travelled, which enables you to live your adventure. Consider going somewhere that no one is talking about, and travel outside of your comfort zone.
- Respect involves the earth, environment, land, preservations, nature, wildlife, conservation, and others.
- Integrity involves not doing the obvious. Do something different and unique.
- Courage involves breaking the rules and doing the unexpected.
