One of my faults as a photographer is my workflow management. I snap away, loving the moment, upload a host of shots, pick the best one of the day and leave the rest to languish, neglected on my hard drive. But sometimes I happen across a rejected shot and find I like it. Perhaps such happy accidents make the chaos worthwhile. Anyway, this afternoon I happened across this forgotten shot from the Spring, and I was glad.
Do you live, like me, in a state of photographic disorder, or are your files neatly honed, indexed, and double backed up?
A lovely shot almost forgotten. Don’t hate me, but my photos are organized by event and chronologically, and are on 2 hard drives at all times. I’ve always been way too organized. Once I organized myself I found it was easier to stay that way, and plus you can find things in a snap.
You are an organisation goddess. I am too lazy 😉
I’m with you Rachael… though I do have MOST of my shots on 2 hard drives it’s just finding them !!
Lovely capture. My photos are categorized by theme.
Thanks! Good idea, although I would have a very large file called ‘bugs’ 😉
Great shot! I am like you, I take many many many, and often go back and realize there is a forgotten gem – but glad you found this one, it’s great 🙂
Thanks! Discovering the forgotten gems is so much fun.
I love your bumble bee in flight, he looks as if he is backing out and hasn’t had the time to get his tongue tucked away yet. I agonise about keeping too many shots that I will never look at again, I sort them into categories and then years.
At least you sort them. Mine are simply by date. I use Flickr to find them again.
