This month’s tip is super easy, but it requires some discipline! Adding this simple tip to your workflow will help you maintain a fantastic portfolio, without the hassle of having to dig through 50 weddings each year to keep yourself up-to-date.
Here’s what you need to do: Create a folder on your desktop where you can save your recent favorite images. Depending on your needs, you should have some loose parameters around what goes in this folder. For example, in order to keep a fresh portfolio of new images, I would put a few of my favorites from each wedding as I download the image files. During the busy season, I wouldn’t even worry about processing them. Doing this made the process easy, as I could pull them into Photoshop and knock out the retouching when it was time to update my portfolio.
So give it a go, you’ll thank me later!
