I am in Japan leading a workshop and one of my clients asked me if I had a single bit of advice for the group before they headed to bed. My response was–yes, review your images. It seems like an obvious thing but you would be surprised at how many people just don’t do it…
One of the most important things that you can do to improve your photography is to review your images carefully after each photo shoot. If you spend the time at the computer looking for ways to improve each of your images you will be less likely to make the same mistakes again in the field. This is especially useful when you are going to shoot at the same location the next day. Also, it is just as important to study your compositions.
I always look at my exif data when viewing my images; it helps me keep an eye on what I am doing right or wrong. In Lightroom go to View> Loupe Info> and “check” both- Show Info Overlay and Info 2, this way the exif data appears in the left hand corner of each image and can be seen easily.
*Snow Monkey, Japan ~ This is a totally different look than usual from the monkey park. I loved his expression. Click on the image to see a larger, sharper view. We had a bit of snow on our first day with the monkeys. Tomorrow they are calling for more snow-fingers crossed!
