Save your time, Be quick

Once you become a professional photographer for any genre. You have opted for photography as your career and then you need to manage all your photographs drives, hard discs, pen drive, cloud and many other hidden or exposed things. I am writing this article about managing and saving your time to perform better as quick as fast. Always remember this is also an important part of professional photography. Maybe, You are good at capturing photographs but consume lots of time to manage your data, equipment etc. believe me no one going to accept you as a professional photographer.

You need to be a perfect photography manager at your end to perform better at every stage of shooting. Moral of the story, how can you save your time so that you can devote your quality time to understand photography in more details. 

Let's discuss the important things to save time. 

Build a Smart central catalogue - While working on lightroom, Find an option "start new catalogue" and add a drive at a time, remember only add a drive, do not copy and then highlight all the images and head on over to build smart previews. This will definitely work out gradually once you started becoming more familiar. Try on and save your time by finding more positive possibilities. 

Build a charging station- As I mentioned above that one you are a professional photographer you have several things to charge like 2-3 batteries, Mobile, laptop, etc. Please build a charging station with 8-10 charging plugs at a single place to work hassle-free, no need to travel your wire from one place to another sometimes this may harm to your staff, family person etc. 

Format Memory cards- One you have copied all the data from your memory card to another hard disc then always format the memory card for next shoot's photographs if you do not follow this step then every time you keep thinking that "have you copied the data or Not". Once the data is copied never leave the data in your memory cards.

Clean the Lens glass- Once the shoot is done then have a habit to clean the Lens's glass front and back both sides before you settle all the photography equipment back to your wardrobe. Means your photography kit is always ready for the next shoot. This habit will pay you always in the future. You will never short of quality equipment. 

Sensor cleaning - Once you are back from the shoot and your post-processing is done. Now you need to check out through your images that does your camera sensor required cleaning. Observe this very carefully and get you sensor clean on a regular basis because the sensor has to produce the image, by cleaning your sensor regularly you save your postprocessing time and sometimes you skip the re-shoot option. 

These are a few important tips which will always help you to save your time to perform better as a professional photographer. 

Keep experimenting and have wonderful and happy photography to you all.
