    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

The lighter side…

Posted by Preston on 2009-11-28

In my spare time I tend to either write, watch a bit of TV or whip out my camera and take some photos. When I bought my 50D, we were lucky enough to also snag a nice 50mm macro lens, which does beautiful depth of field as well as actual macro photography.

My cats are particularly enjoying the 50D – while it’s not as good as my partner’s 5D, it does have one advantage over older cameras – the ability to take decent shots in lower light situations without needing a flash. Since the cats are often the subject of my photography, they’re at least starting to put up with a camera that doesn’t half blind them every time the shutter goes.

Even a very average amateur photographer like myself can manage to get great shots with a great camera, thus proving that if you want to take good photos, step yourself up to a digital SLR – even on full program mode, it’ll outstrip the best of the “prosumer” point and click devices.

I’m particularly pleased with this morning’s efforts:

Stitch

In case you’re not familiar, that’s a Burmese. They’re identifiable almost instantly by their yellow to golden eyes. They’re amongst the most intelligent cats you can get whilst simultaneously being the most loving, frequently putting dogs to shame. And yes, they fetch too.
