Editing with Prints.


Just a quick post, firstly editing means to sort through your images, not to manipulate a single image endlessly.  I’m currently collating the shots for an Aberdeen Project that I’ve been working on for two years. I had been editing the images in Lightroom and kept going round in circles. Whenever this happens I take a break from it for a day or two then things tend to become clearer. Prints are so cheap online that I order a set of 6″ x 4″ of all the shots that I’m considering for an article/ Project. I do a general sort initially to remove the compositions that I think don’t hold together. I then lay them all out on a large table and try to whittle it down to 30-50 images. This final amount are then placed on a board on the wall and again left for a few days. The human brain recognises patterns, which is useful from an evolutionary perspective. Once you’ve seen the set of prints a few times you start to see pairs of images, sequences and missing shots that you need to take. So give it a try you might find it really helps your latest project.
