It’s spring break and with that comes some time away from the everyday and loads and loads of photos! Whether you are just home from break or planning your getaway, we have a challenge for you that will enable you to preserve, protect and ENJOY your photos and the memories they hold.
Photo Fitness Challenge #1
If you haven’t gone on your trip yet, here’s your challenge:
Limit the number of photos you take of a single landscape or scenario. Most of us take many duplicates of the same thing or same situation and then can’t decide which to keep. With the advent of digital cameras, we can instantly see the photos we just took so…when you have a good one, just stop snapping!
Photo Fitness Challenge #2
For those of you just returning from your day in the sun (ha…see what I did there?) your challenge is a little different but not so terribly hard:
Simply delete the duplicate, blurry and meaningless photos from your camera or phone. That’s all. You don’t have to make any hard decisions, just remove the ones that are not good.
If you have too many to manually sift through in one sitting, take advantage of those moments in life where you are forced to (ugh) WAIT. You know the moments – at the bank, waiting for the doctor, in the pickup lane at your child’s school, etc. You’ll be surprised how much you can accomplish a few minutes at a time!
If you do these two simple things, you will already be well on your way to making your collection more meaningful to you. You will be able to find the photos you like (because the ones that are just plain bad will be gone!)
In our next post, we’ll talk about setting up a hub and learning the basic process of moving your photos into it. It’s much easier than you think!
