Streamlined Organization in Lightroom | Tim Grey12/18/2017
In this B&H Event Space video, photographer and educator Tim Grey demystifies the process of keeping your photos organized by streamlining your workflow in Adobe Lightroom. Starting with an empty Lightroom catalog, Grey’s first recommendation is to take a step back before you click the Import button, and to familiarize yourself with all the details of the program so you truly understand how it works. Some of his other valuable lessons include tips for reviewing photos quickly, insights on making the most of keywords, techniques for unearthing specific photos using metadata and filters, and much, much more. After watching, you’ll have a new appreciation for all the different features Lightroom offers. Using these tools, you’ll be able to refine your workflow so you’ll always be able to find the photo you need, whenever you need it.
Another great tutorial of Lightroom from Tim Grey. I didn't know about the "Goto folder" feature.
I do use the pick/reject method of selecting photos. I started with Lightroom in 2011 when I learned about the database capabilities when I was shooting with film. I keyworded my documents, but since I've started shooting digital past 2013, I've gotten lax.
For the pick/reject, I'll reject photos that are out of focus and I used it in August going through photos from the solar eclipse. I did an automated photo sequence with bracketing. Those photos that were serverly overexposed or severely underexposed that would require extensive editing got rejected.
