How to use a Lightroom Catalog on multiple computers

I have one Lightroom database for my photographs, but multiple computers. Of course I want be able to edit my photos on every computer. The obvious solution is to put the catalog on a network share. But the catalog is a sqlite-Database which is build to be accessed by one process only. Because of this, Lightroom forbids to use a catalog that is located on a network share.

My solution is to rsync the catalog before Lightroom starts and sync it back, when the process terminates. To avoid conflicts, I create a lockfile during the runtime of Lightroom. Not very fancy, but this works well for me.

J and S

The image does not look very innovative, but taking it was a lot of fun. After the obligatory "dancing book poses" the models got more relaxed. As always, the really interesting photos are taken at the end ("hey, there are some megabytes left on the sdcard, let’s try this…").

Strobist info: Octabox camera left (very close to the middle), one striplight right of the models, one SB-600 from the upper left corner of the background.

Cancer Clan

Shot for the upcoming third demo of Cancer Clan.

The setup was pretty simple:

We tried to use a second flash to get a shadow of the chainsaw-blade. It was hard to adjust everything and when we got finally a good shadow, the whole photo looked pretty boring…

Es gibt … Nudeln mit Tomatensauce!

Warum? Das Ergebnis ist überaus delikat und die Zubereitung dauert genau so lange, wie das Kochen der Nudeln, plus 3 – 5 Minuten für die Vorarbeiten. So geht’s:

Pro Person 100g Nudeln, 1 Liter Wasser und – GANZ WICHTIG – zwei Teelöffel Salz.

Nudeln mit Tomatensauce

Parmesan (so etwa 50-100g), ein bis zwei Handvoll Tomate, bisschen Ölivenöl.

Nudeln mit Tomatensauce

Tomaten kleinschneiden und Parmesan reiben.

Nudeln mit Tomatensauce

Wasser mit Salz kochen, Nudeln hinein.

Zeit mit der Sauce zu beginnen.

Nudeln mit Tomatensauce

Olivenöl in einer GROSSEN Pfanne erhitzen.

Parmesan zugeben und kurz anbraten.

Es bilden sich interessante Käsecluster.

Mit einer Kelle Nudelwasser ablöschen, weiter rühren, bis sich die Käsecluster wieder aufgelöst haben.

Tomaten hinzufügen…

…und mitdünsten.

Noch ein bis zwei Kellen …

… Nudelwasser hinzugeben.

Das Ganze kommt einem jetzt etwas suppig vor, das macht aber nix.

Nudeln abgießen…

Sie saugen sich voll.

Fertig!

Noch mehr Parmesan sowie frischer Pfeffer tun ein Übriges.

Nudeln mit Tomatensauce

Das Rezept erlaubt etliche Variationen. Z.B. kann statt der ersten Kelle Nudelwasser Weißwein den Käse ablöschen. Die Tomate können durch frischen Chili ergänzt werden, in welchem Fall zum Schluss auch frische Petersilie prima passt. Oder die Tomaten werden gänzlich durch Zucchini ersetzt, die dann wiederum von Thymian und Zitronensaft verfeinert werden, oder … Hauptsache die Nudeln sind nicht zu weich.

Guten Appetit 😉

Lucía asked for pictures for her job application. In germany it is common to send a photo attached to your cv, so we tried something serious.
