Culling. The bane of photographers near and wide. Thank goodness we shoot pets and not weddings, right?!? (for a myriad of reasons, lol!)
A regular session for me generally results in approximately 400 images to go through, of which I want to show 30-50 to my client. That’s a lot of culling.
Check out this video to see see the first stage of my culling process.
The second round is just the opposite, I pick rejects instead of keepers. By flagging the rejected photos in round two, I have a B-roll created that I can turn to if one of my chosen images turns out to be a little soft or unusable for any reason.
