Relatively new member here -- have a quickly growing collection of digital photographs, especially over the last year as we've gone from a 1 camera household to a 3 camera household
Essentially, we now have a DSLR (my camera) and two point & shoots (wife and 5 yr old son)
Trying to work through the best workflow to deal with all three. Trying to think this through a bit more then in the past -- so on my second more thoughtful read of the book now.
Here's a few initial questions:
1. Do I put all three camera's into the same workflow/bucket system? Or create separate 'pipelines' for each camera?
-- My thought here is everything goes through the same process with an identical workflow, and the photos from all 3 cameras are archived into buckets.
2. If using one workflow, do I consistently separate the two P&S cameras into separate sub-folders within the buckets? Or mix all 3 cameras into sub-folders if all of us are shooting together?
-- Looking at moving to Blu-Ray as the write-once media - used CD's at one point, then DVD's -- bigger here is definitely better.
-- I'm thinking keeping the P&S separate folders may be worthwhile as generally the volume is much smaller. And the 'standards' for keepers are slightly different
3. In the future, I'm assuming there will come a day when my son will want to manage his own photos? How best to prepare for that now?
-- What are the considerations I should think about here??
-- Should I consider a separate catalog of his photos?
Would appreciate any comments on what has worked for other's with several family camera's in play:)
