Holiday Tip for Designers

Here is a fun design tip you won't find on Pinterest!  Everyone knows that a digital camera is a valuable tool for any graphic artist.  I've used mine almost daily for the past seven years for tasks ranging from stock photo creation, slide reproduction, and even to send proof copies of my work to clients when my scanner was malfunctioning.  

So to be safe when traveling I put my camera in a box and then wrap that box in a pair of sturdy jeans.  That's not the helpful tip.  

My helpful and fun advice to you is this:  Don't throw your entire suitcase full of clothes into the washing machine.  If you do, try not to scream when you see your waterlogged camera nestled inside your damp jeans.   Because I screamed like a lunatic and almost ruined Christmas. 

I used my trusty digital camera (originally a Christmas gift from my husband) to capture this image from a slide.  The slide was purchased from an antique store.  The slide was made in the 1960s by an unknown photographer.  I didn't have the right program or tools to capture slide images at the time.  Happily my excellent camera and a dark closet were all that I needed to make a digital copy of this fine image and use it on a client's website.  Sigh...good times.
