Day 325 (Nov 21) These are the notes I took while 2014 was exporting yesterday and I was watching a B&H video-recorded class on YouTube called Getting Started in Lightroom5 by Tim Grey. He said he wished he could get to people before they import any photos, to help them set up Lightroom well first. How timely, since I'm starting all over with a clean slate! The notes you can read in this image refer to his suggested way to use the star ratings. He stars all his keepers with 1 star in a first pass. Then he goes through them a couple more times, upgrading the stars for worthy pics. It makes sense to me and I think I'm going to start doing it that way. I have hardly been using stars at all; definitely not consistently. This start-over is inspiring me to improve my photography workflow and I'm excited to become more efficient and organized.
