Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Photo select decision strategies, part of Introduction to Photography: Lightroom and Photoshop.
- If your work is going well,…you're shooting a lot of pictures.…You've got your eyes open so you're seeing lots…of cool subjects, and when you shoot them,…you're working them, you're trying lots of different…compositions, you're shooting from different points of view,…you're playing with different exposure ideas.…That means you're coming home with a lot…of shots of the same things, and odds are there are…only one or two or maybe a handful…of those that you actually like.…There's no reason to bother correcting and editing…images that you don't like, so the next step…in your workflow is to identify your select…or keeper or pick or favorite images,…whatever you want to call them.…
These are the images that you will pass through…the rest of your workflow, and we take this step…to ensure that we don't spend a lot of time…adjusting an image only to discover…that there's a better shot of the same thing later.…And I do that here in Library Mode.…And Lightroom has some kind of standard features…that you're gonna find in any image…
