One of the first things I do after looking through images is to name the ones that stand out (whether I like the image a lot or I think it has some possible future value). This serves a couple of different purposes. One, it helps me locate an image by its appearance rather than by the time or location; it basically helps me remember it better. Another way is by helping to prioritize images when I’ve shot several exposures of one subject. Sometimes I shoot dozens of the same subject – using different lighting or exposure or shutter speeds. Naming them in this way may not be the most efficient way (for some people) but I find it an enjoyable process. The part I enjoy most is how sometimes a story will start to build and I never know where that will take me. Sometimes I let the story tell itself.
Here are some images where that happened. The names of the images are…alien invasion, the landing and twilight zone.
Sometimes its fun to just let the story unfold.
Every image doesn’t have to be a ‘work of art’.
