Looking back...

After a recent conversation with a National Geographic photographer, I got some insight about his workflow. Typically he will sort through his photos in three intervals: once he downloads everything onto his computer so that its still fresh in his mind, one week later to see if he missed anything, and then once more a few months down the road when he no longer has the immediate connection or attachment to the shoot. This was an interesting concept, because usually I sort through my photos that first day then never see many of them again. Just last week, however, I was transferring all the content from my old laptop to my new one which gave me the opportunity to look over all my old photos and I was amazed at what I found! There were definitely some gems that for whatever reason never made it into my portfolio. Maybe at first glance I didn't think much of these photos, but I think that my eye has changed over the years. Lesson learned: always go back to photos that were shot in the past to see if you missed anything during the initial sort.  I was happy to find some images that I truly love!
