I am told that I am brutal on deleting photos that I don’t like after a shoot. If it’s out of focus, blown out, too dark, can’t see the eyes, etc. it goes in the recycle bin. On any given outing, I may fill an 8 gigabyte card with 400 photos and keep only 30 to 50 images. It’s just how I am.
Storage of photos is a big concern of mine. I have a 500 gig external HD that is full and a 250 gig HD that is nearing full. These are kept locked in a fire safe along with our other valuables. Once a month I will go through photos that have not been scrutinized and begin the process of elimination. It’s nearing the time that another hard drive is going to be purchased and with that, a larger fire safe.
We though it would be fun to show a few photos that normally would not be included on this site. I call this series “Rear View”, a look at birds that are facing away from the lens (or have a rear end showing). If you have better captions than I have provided, let’s see them.
