Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video The Lightroom workflow after tagging, part of Travel Photography: Geologging and Journaling on the Road.
…I've imported my images, I've geotagged them, I'm…now ready to do the rest of my workflow.…You're going to see me doing this in Lightroom but this…is not a Lightroom specific thing I'm talking about here.…This is just what you're going to do, no matter…what image editing and organization software you normally use.…I've got all my images here, they're all tagged.…You can see they're tagged because Lightroom…gives me this little geotag badge here.…You also see that some are tagged.…I've actually been shooting around the hotel here, and…I haven't tagged those, because I'd already gotten off the bike.…I'd turned off the GPS, so the track log doesn't include any of this.…
I'm leaving them like that for now, because at some point,…I'm just going to go take a picture with my iPhone.…It will grab the location.…I can copy and paste that in there. That's easy enough to do.…So, now I'm ready to just move onto the normal…workflow steps that I would do for any type of shoot.…And I'm going to go through these, this…process kind of quickly because I didn't shoot…

Ben takes us on a road trip across the Southwest to detail a variety of methods for documenting the salient moments of a trip. Ben discusses and demonstrates software and hardware tools for capturing the notes, images, and location data from your trip, and assembling them into a journal that you can share with others or keep as a personal memento of your travels. He also shares tips on publishing your journal as a PDF or a printed book. Along the way, he provides insightful advice on establishing a balance between documenting your travels and experiencing them.
