There is always more to do. I have taken quite a bit of new stuff in the last couple of weeks, trying to capture the last of the spectacular Autumn colours in Dorset and Hampshire.
And now I have to tidy up the mess I have left behind.
I am still not sorting my images in Lightroom properly, so as part of the improvements to my workflow I am going to start the task of sorting out my images from both ends of my Lightroom Catalogue.
Yes I am going to sort the oder years, starting with 2005, and at the same time work back from the new stuff.
And if I stick to both I should meet myself in the middle.
The plan is this.
Starting with the year 2005, for which I have now only 64 images, meaning I will also do my 2005 collection containing just 444 images, I am going to do the following
- Rate images
- Delete rejects
And that is the approach I am going to take to every image in my Lightroom Catalogue.
At the same time I going to start with recent images.
- So when I do 2005 I will also do November 2016.
- And when I do 2006 I will also do October 2016.
This will help me get on top of my new work whilst sorting out my old stuff. Hopefully the way I have set up everything in Lightroom will work how I want it, but if not I will still be getting rid of images I dont want.
Now I know this is dull but I have to get on with it. I have organisational needs at both ends of my Lightroom Catalogue which I need to start addressing now.
This is a natural follow on from my two blog posts, one of which had a title which summed things up nicely
How to organise your photos in Lightroom
Time I did just that!
