How to organize photos

Just finished reading (and watching) Trey Ratcliffs latest book/tutorial Organize Your Photos – The Three Level System. I’ve been using Treys approach to organization for a longer time, since I read his older book about this subject. But the new version now splits this into three levels based on your obsession with your organization. I can honestly say, I’m level 3, I’m very obsessive with my organisation. But as my Lightroom library is around 100 000+ photos, I have to be. Still the new book gave me a few new ideas what to change and tweak, even if I still have to clean up a big part of my own library.

So if you are looking for a way to organize you photos, this new book could be for your. You can find it here Organize Your Photos – The Three Level System (BONUS), and if you decide to buy it, you can use the code “SIC-6591” for a 10% discount :)

Almost perfect reflection

I think I mentioned it before, but the Kuchajda lake is the best place for reflections in Bratislava. It’s always very calm, and the sunset look just great there. You can almost think that this reflection is fake, created in Photoshop, as it just looks too perfect. But I can assure you, this is really how it looked like. And since the whole week we have great sunsets in Bratislava, I had one also yesterday. This photo is even taken a little later, after the best colors already faded, when the blue hour already began. But I processed it first, as in the sunset photos you cant see the building lights so much. Either way, I will get to those later anyway.

This is a HDR created in Oloneo Photoengine and then blended with original exposures in Photoshop.
