How to Import, Organize & Rate a Photoshoot in Lightroom
After a shoot, I want to spend as little time as possible in front of my computer processing the images.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the post production process. But it’s very easy to get stuck in Lightroom all day processing images that I’m not even going to show the client or share online. And as much as I love the process, I’d rather be out there shooting.
I’ve put together this video tutorial which illustrates my organization workflow after a shoot. How I import the photos onto my computer, how I organize them in folders so that they’re easy to find years down the line, and finally, how I rate the individual photos in Adobe Lightroom, so that I’m only left with editing the ones I know are the very best and can quickly find those killer images to share on platforms like Instagram later.
Everybody is different, and this is what works for me. Hopefully, you can take away at least one thing that you can incorporate into your workflow.
