Another one checked off the list!

I will sheepishly admit that this post has been in my drafts folder for over a year.  Yikes!  Once wedding season kicked into high gear, other things took precedent, so I’m playing catch up on some blog posts that I want to share with clients and photographers.

You may remember that last week I did a bit of a recap of how my 101 in 1001 goal adventure is going.  One of the things I realized is that while I’m busting through the list pretty fast, I’m not so great at blogging about how and when I’ve accomplished these goals!  So today’s post is my first effort at jumping back in…and obviously, that means backtracking a bit.

Last spring, I FINALLY upgraded to a new computer, a 27 inch iMac!  Now I can check goal #56 off my list: Replace my laptop with a desktop computer, more suitable for photo editing. Woohoo!

I’m a Mac-lover at heart, so the choice was a no-brainer for me.  I knew I’d need the extra screen real estate for editing, so I opted for the larger 27 inch screen.  I choose the fastest one I could get, and upgraded the RAM myself to save some money.  Apple is notorious for overcharging for upgrading RAM, so going the DIY-route can save you a good chunk of change.

So far, I looooooooove it!  Working in Lightroom and Photoshop is so much faster than my 6 year-old ancient laptop, so I can deliver photos from weddings and senior sessions about twice as fast as I used to.  It’s pretty wonderful!
