Catalog and Photo Naming Clarification
I've been asked about naming conventions for the NHSPA NOW catalogs, so I thought I'd clarify what is best for the overall project management.
The catalog should be named based on the area, what it contains, and which review session it will be reviewed- I.E:
WHAT IS MORE IMPORTANT IS THAT EVERY PHOTO IS ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE PHOTOGRAPHER WHO TOOK IT
PLEASE INSURE THAT YOUR NAME IS IN THE COPYRIGHT EXIF DATA
You can also name your photos beginning with the region, your name, and a unique name I.E:
In the last review there were a number of photos which could not be attributed to a specific photographer.
It's good policy for all photographers to include the copyright information in the EXIF data. Many cameras allow you to do it in the camera (well... at least Canon does, which is what I shoot with) and LIGHTROOM allows you to add the information easily.
If you need help with the Lightroom part, drop me a note and I'll go over it with you.
