One of the most important things to do, when you finish a shoot, is to transfer them to your hard disk, and then take a back up on another card disk.
In my earlier days, I would, very tediously, rank (give a star rating) and, a colour label to each photo, and then apply tags to each photo.
When I returned from my driving trip, I had several thousand photographs, and was quite exhausted when I was 10% of the way through the process. Maybe about 5%.
I then left the process, and stopped this altogether.
That is when I discovered a nice process that I picked up from Phlearn. You can watch the video below if you want to learn the process
I tend to follow a hybrid, and longer process. I don’t know why, but I do.
First, I give my photos a 5 star rating in Adobe Bridge. These photos are then copied to another folder, and then I import them to Lightroom.
I do this, to avoid having my Lightroom catalogue become too big.
Once this is done, then I follow the exact same process that you will see in the video.
What this means, is that I know have to rate and tag far fewer photos than I did initially, and the process is now much quicker.
