Ahhh, so the big, demystifying story behind the story is here! Well, Friday I had thought I lost a memory card from one of the most exciting and fun shoots I have ever done. I know, right? So not cool. The day was packed with so much action and coordinating on my part- to wrap it up there was even running in the muddy wet grass with a model actually chasing rainbows and lens flare! That's right. The kicker is I have such a controlled way of handling spent cards, I don't even want them on my person in the event that I rewrite over them, which I will never do anyway because I do NOT format cards at a shoot, ever. I even have these color coordinated pouches for (green) means go in my world, it's free, it's useable, shoot em up; yellow- caution- shot on, no touchie for you, but still has to be backed up and red, stop- talk to the hand, shot on, backed up, step away from the vehicle, the end, fin. Ah, but the best laid plans, you know how it goes. So in my flurry of physical activity I had filled a card, put it in my back pocket and jammed another card in my camera to keep shooting. Later I thought I had misplaced the card when I had actually already backed it up and the real funny-ish part here is that I had already viewed the images in bed on my p-2000! I thought that I just had either a dream or a super memory of what I had caught in camera! So when everyone was here, helping- Krystal asked what the images looked like in case they found them on a card. So I pulled up one image, looked at it, started bawling because it wasn't even the best image and it still was really pretty! When lo and behold I started scrolling thru a little deeper than I had before and discovered that the images were on my p-2000 the entire time! So then we all got a good laugh, I cried from relief, called .com to tell him he did not in fact have to rip apart his car and gear looking for my stupid card- we decided to celebrate with some yummy margaritas!
But the best part- the next day Jean, my kick butt assistant told me that after she got off the phone with me she rounded her husband and two kids up and scoured the park for my card! How thoughtful are they?? People really come through for you in a bind, I SO have been feeling that lately!
