Reading through the material for the Art of Photography Course has made me realise that I am going to have to be much better at organising and sorting the photos that I take.
So, I’ve been studying the manual for ViewNX which came on the disc when I bought my camera. It seems very easy to use and even allows minor modifications to the photo. I like the thumbnail mode (bit like having a contact sheet but with the ability to enlarge each one instantly) and the way that you can see the tree of folders that you store photos in.
I’m going to have to give a bit more thought to the structure of the files I will be creating, but for the course I guess I will create a folder for each element of the module and sub-folders for each exercise.
The great thing is that I will also be able to associate keywords with each photo to make them easy to find in the future. My photos will never have been as well organised!
