With an ever-growing group of work on paper, cataloging is critical. For social media and other forms of marketing and most of us do it ourselves. Organization is key for a smooth photo shoot. The following guidelines work well for me.
Full charge, camera or phone.
Paper and pencil for notes, tape, ruler.
Clearing a large table or workspace is advisable for groups of work. Water bottles w/ lids good, Coffee cups separate table.
Setting up location and lighting to shoot work preparing for different scales and orientations, horizontal, vertical format.
I try to shoot three good images of each work editing as I go, deleting bad shots. This approach makes editing at a later date simpler as I've already deleted the bad.
Keeping the workspace organized avoiding confusion is key to a smooth photo shoot. I am always tweaking the process trying things that make sense and save time.
If anyone has any advice I'm all 👂s.
