Is the picture badly composed, is it out of focus, or has it no content. Out it goes.
Every few years I need to review my thousands of photographs and delete those I am never going to use again. There are hundreds each month alone for the Discovery Shop. Mostly, I delete those without a seconds thought. A terabyte of hard drive fills up rapidly even if you are paying attention to it. I have a backup, and that hard drive creeps toward full with appalling rapidity too.
It all comes down to bravery. Decisions. Should I save every picture ever taken of children or grandchildren? Every picture ever taken of George? I don’t need every landscape view, but a few are captivating and stay. Travel images. Some of those I keep to make a full picture.
Boy do I have a lot of pictures.
