Lessons learned when dealing with technological problems

Working with technology is not without its challenges, and photography is no different. Sometimes things go wrong and there is nothing you can do about it. Therefore, it pays to be prepared for eventualities and have backups of almost everything on hand.

Expect the unexpected

Recently, I was in the studio with a client. We were having a beautiful morning, chatting about hair and makeup, while I got everything ready in the studio. We had been shooting for about 30 minutes and all of a sudden I couldn’t connect the camera to my laptop.

I turned off the camera, unplugged the tether cable, and turned the camera back on. Now I didn’t have Live View and couldn’t access playback. I got a weird error message on each feature saying the feature was disabled. Fantastic! Right in the middle of the client’s portrait session.
