How do you remember all of the specific places you have captured?

posted on 23rd of september, 2015

I have the perfect and i think easiest solution to this question.

As many of us take lot's of pictures and then have to sort through them, it is important that we capture the specific details of our photo shoots.

For example, i have traveled to many places within China in a short period of time so it's hard to remember the names of everything i have taken pictures of which are needed for keywording correctly later when the images are finally uploaded. Since being in China i have taken over 20,000 images so you can see my dilemma.

To help with this issue, i will take pictures of signs with the names of the attraction, view, building, etc. This will allow me later to correctly keyword my pictures which will help a customer find my images. The picture of the sign will also be grouped together...

I often take pictures of signs to jog my memory about locations as well.

Taking photos of signs - place names, names of plants, animals, etc - can be a huge help later on. I write notes too but find having the signs in with my images themselves to be very helpful when I'm keywording. I also sometimes take a photo with my iPhone since that will give me GPS coordinates. Then I'll upload those photos with the ones from my cameras.

About me

I have been taking pictures in some capacity since 1985. What first started as a hobby has progressed into a passion for photography. Many of the pictures I take invoke an emotion in me that i hope translates to those that look at my images.
