Cut Your Culling Time in Half

POSTED IN : Photographers, Shooting & Workflow

Have you ever listened to a This American Life podcasts from NPR?If you haven't, then I congratulate you on your cool-ness.
If you have listened to way too much NPR, then you are either an uber-nerd or a photographer that's editing.
I happen to fall into both categories.Welcome to my geeky world where an hour of listening to investigative reporting on the effects of toxic investments on the economic meltdown sounds like a pretty good time while achieving natural skin tones.When it comes to processing images, podcasts have become my life-savers. I have found several sixty-minute, thirty-minute, and fifteen-minute podcasts that I basically use to time myself during afternoons of culling and editing.Cull an engagement shoot? That's an hour-long This American Life.Edit the blog images from a wedding? A thirty minute interview from Fresh Air.Categorize a wedding for proofing? I'll cue up a fifteen minute 99% Invisible podcast with Roman Mars.But this wasn't always the case.Before we started using Photo Mechanic to cull our images, I needed an entire AUDIOBOOK to finish a job.
Watch my quick screencast and see how we use Photo Mechanic to quickly and effectively cull, sort, tag, and prep our images before editing them in Lightroom.
Our culling time was cut in HALF with this simple, easy, and inexpensive program!Hugs, Erin
