Making Space

Mary Ann's life as a nature photographer is a constant battle for disk space. On a good day, she'll shoot several gigabytes of photos. It's a rare day when she only uses one of her 1GB flash cards. This trip is two weeks of rich photo opportunity for her.

So her laptop hard drive fills up quickly, and her two portable 100GB drives, and the 8 external firewire drives (see them up against the windshield). So ... she has to burn them to DVD's. Her work flow requires that she has two copies of the images at all times, so she spends a lot of time churning them out. Our only hope is that those 750GB hard drives drop in price soon.
