Episode Number: 430

I have had several conversations about what to do with bad images lately. So, in this week’s podcast, we revisit a classic topic for organization and working with your images–what to do with all those bad images. I am not a just delete and burn person; I think there are some reasons to really consider what you are deleting and why. Not only does experience shift over time as we learn more about what makes a good photograph meaning what was once skipped might be found, but we also can learn from looking at those bad images. So before you delete and purge, listen to the podcast and see if your approach is the best long-term solution.
