It seems to me one of the hardest things for photographers to do is to edit our own images. With the lower cost of storage space, it is easier to buy a new hard drive than it is to actually delete images. I have had several people tell me that they don’t get better sitting on your hard drive.
With this suggestion in mind, I took on the task of sorting through images reevaluating and deleting what I have stored. In so doing I was able to clear some valuable hard drive space. Even more important to me I found several images that I had taken last year that I had not even evaluated. The image at the top of this page is one example of what I found. The task of evaluating actually turned out to be fun as I was able to see the possibility of these images being of value to me.
Keep in mind that housecleaning can be great for gaining space as well as finding images that you definitely need to reconsider. I guess the final thought would be evaluate, delete, edit and gain.
