Using metadata to win the editing game
If your camera allows you to rate your photographs in the field, meaning the ability to rate while shooting, then I feel that is a great way to get a jump start on your photography culling and editing. There are times when I am on a conference photoshoot, or especially on a corporate or business headshot, where I have some downtime to hit the review button and start looking at my image. Anything that you rate on the camera, gets stored in the metadata of the image file. This data is built into the image that will then show up in your Lightroom catalogue. You have the ability to give you images a 1-5 star rating in the camera, which stays with the photo upon importing. This tactic has saved me so much time!I am going to be posting more helpful photography editing video tutorials on my website and blog in the coming year to help give you 2020 VISION and creative freedom with your photography. If you have any suggestions as to what kind of topics you’d like me to cover, please message me here or email! Find more helpful editing and tagging blogs posts in my archive!
