Photography Tips and Tricks - 9 (How to Store Photos)

January 19, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Today's tip does not require your camera.  Instead, today I want you to think of how you store and save your photos.  I will write a blog post on the process of backing up my photos.  So my tip for you today I am sharing my method to store my photos.  I create a folder structure for each year and a folder for each month and then a folder for the shoot.

So, it may look like this

C:\Photos
   |--2000
       |--January
           |--Landscapes
                |--Raw
                |--Output
            |--FullMoon
                |--Raw
                |--Output
 

I use Lightroom to import the photos in the structure and use Lightroom to rename each photo with the same name as the folder or something that is related to the photoshoot.  Photos need meaningful names.   If there are several different themes, I can import each theme one at a time to assign the names.

I am glad you found my blog.  I am a photographer with a passion for awesome shots.  I go to great lengths to capture many of my photos.  I will re-visit a location over and over knowing there is a spectacular photo just waiting to be had if I am there at the right time.   I also enjoy finding how to do some abstract projects (check out my time-lapse post) and will be writing about them.

Send me a note via my contact page for some projects you would like to see me try and write about.  I am not afraid to try almost any project.  Doing the obscure forces me to do things that I don't do with the typical photo shoot and helps me learn even more.
