part of my 2013 goals is to go big. do things that take a little extra work, slow down and focus on making better work, no more snapshots, etc. I want to do things that are great.
one thing I’ve done is my geotagging project.
I’ve been wanting to geotag my archive for a while now. With the release of Lightroom 4, I started to geotag all of my photos going forward, so 2012 was done, but that left over 120,000 photographs untagged.
Nothing worse than having to go back into your archive and add details that would have only taken a few minutes a day if you’d been doing them all along.
I came up with a plan to make the job manageable. I’d simply geotag by day. So on November 1st, I’d go through and geotag every shot I’d taken on November 1st from 1986 until 2011. Sounded like a great plan, and I’d be done in a year or so.
But then I went completely mental and geotagged over 130,000 photos in one month.
I’m still trying to recover.
But now I’ve got an incredible data set that I can put to use in a hundred different ways.
