Okay so I’ve previously talked about using Pinterest to organize your inspirational photos from the internet. I still think that’s a good way to start, but my biggest gripe about you is that it’s not slideshow friendly. What I mean is that the I want to use the photos in a slideshow, however Pinterest doesn’t have anything build in for that. That totally screws up my organizational plans and doesn’t allow me to quickly view photos during an actual shoot.
My solution to this is to use Microsoft one note which comes with Microsoft Office 2010. I really like the notebook approach. Think of a scrapbook and One Note is perfect for this. A cool feature is that you can actually drag and drop photos into the application. Another words, drag a photo from a web page you like right into the application.
The other part is the ipad app for one note allows you to sync between the ipad and PC so your images are right there. You can add your photos to a table and then add notes about what you like or don’t like.
Today I’m organizing photos that I’m actually had on my computer and I’m putting them into one note so that they are in better categories as well. I’ve been wadding through all the photos that I have collected over the last few years and I’ve been picking and choosing the best to keep and organize. I’ve got all kinds of different categories including dance, lingerie, glamour, and bit of boudoir.
Of the photos I’m keeping, I LOVE the beauty and elegance of the images. I’m not into raunchy stuff. When I work with a model, I want her to leave my studio feeling beautiful and powerful!
Here’s a screenshot of my notepad. The categories are along the top. The subcategories are on the right
