It’s been a busy couple of weeks here in the real world. I decided about a month ago that it was time to have a real computer to deal with my photographs now that digital is apparently here to stay.
I decided to build it from the ground up. This way I could be sure it had the combination of hardware that I wanted without it being a massive compromise. This will be the first computer I’ve owned that hasn’t come from an electronics recycling bin, the side of the road, or cost more than $200 from the store. An exciting prospect to be sure.
Unsurprisingly, computers have become a primary tool for photographers. As important as good meters, reliable batteries and excellent studio lighting. I’m looking forward to life in 2017.
