Is your Adobe Creative Cloud data safe? Think again!

+Scott Kelby +RC Concepcion +Matt Kloskowski Kelby Gang, we just hit a HUGE snag/bug with Lightroom (LR Mobile) and Adobe Cloud storage. There is a major flaw in the LR GUI when creating Catalogs and "sync"ing to Adobe CC. 

Long story short, it's VERY simple and easy to delete 1000s of images off of your creative cloud in a matter of a second. 

And what's worse? Adobe has no means of data recovery for us, as a paying customer of an enterprise cloud storage service! Unbelievable!

While they apologized to us profusely about the very unacceptable oversight in the software and their back-end data storage practices, it makes it none the less possible to get back work on 1000s of images that were worked on by our studio crew, from multiple devices. 

I can fill you guys in on the details. It's a scenario very likely possible for many studios/businesses who have more than 1 computer or 1 person syncing/using LR/LR Mobile/CC. I believe very strongly that this should be talked about out in the open.

Weird. I use CC for software subscription but I don't store my files there. 

:(

Aber wirklich

Thanks to my buddy +Laura Lopez for showing me this video on how CRAZY German can get with its word compounding.

Pretty hilarious! +Moritz Tolxdorff I dare you to memorize this, or say the biggest word 10 times fast. It made my tongue fall out of my mouth :-P~

Getting it right in camera!

Here's a jpg straight off of my Fuji X-T1 from yesterday where we found a stranded house right off of route 7 in the middle of urban sprawl. If it wasn't for all the ticks jumping over me, I would have gone around this old burnt down house as is showed a lot of potential.

Note: I toned it with Snapseed (aka G+ photo editor) after upload :)

Are you wondering where your #stories  are?

Maybe like me you made an Oopsie. Double check your Settings in G+! 

I found the problem +Moritz Tolxdorff. My "Auto Awesome"
setting was OFF. That's why nothing's been showing up under my Stories. I just turned it on, let's see what happens in the next day :)

Happy Birthday to my homie +Brian McDonald

I don't really post often on G+ anymore, been way too busy with life. But thanks to a little intervention, I am taking the opportunity to wish an old fellow of mine a very Happy Birthday! It's been Ages! I hope you're well Brian, and I hope the rest of you all are well also. 

Hope this year is filled with more camera gear, carpentry gear, new cool table creations and all sorts of coolness bro!

Cheers!

+Moritz Tolxdorff It's time to upgrade from your Sugru Mini-dock buddy! Check this out.

Here's one pretty badass dock for the Macbook Pros. Yowza!! Impeccable craftsmanship, nice rubberized sleeve on the inside, and all the ports just plug right in to the laptop. Boom!

Thanks to my buddy +Brett Meier for the heads up.

This game is entirely rigged. Something is off

We need some Germans to come in and show people how to play a proper Semi-final.

Have you tried Hyperlapsing instead of timelapsing?

Hyper-lapsing is basically taking the timelapse process to the next level. Explained most basically; you move the camera between each frame. It is a lot of work, but the results are pretty awesome!

This is a perfect example of what I mean by Hyper-Lapse photography/videography Frank. 

Check out this link which has a finished video plus BTS info. Pretty cool stuff! Pay attention to the different motion tricks you can play with hyper-lapsing, and also the cool effects of dolley-ing, panning and rotating around a static POI or object.

+Gary D That's actually all you need to get started! :) Actual *Hyper*lapses are done using our feet, not any kind of rack or motor.

Washington Monument is open again Wooooo!

Like my buddy +Frank Ruggles has mentioned, all the repairs to the Washington Monument, after our last "major-ish* earthquake are finished. No longer is she wrapped up in scaffolding and ugly distractions like construction fences and that sort of non-sense.

If you live in the DC area, or nearby, or are travelling here; she's back in business for the masses. 

I personally plan on standing in the long lines and taking a ride up to the top for the rarely seen view of the nation's capitol.

I used to shoot out around DC a lot back in the day, and here just a few shots from the monument and her surroundings.
