Focus Program Meeting – Presentation by Terry Mieger on Image Management
What do you do with 187,000 images?
For me, my life with serous photography began in 1965 when my bike was stolen at CSU and the insurance money was used to buy a Miranda single lens reflex camera. Shooting just few hundred images in a year and using my upstairs bathroom as a darkroom, it was no problem to stick the images in a few dresser drawers, albums or slide sleeves. Trying to find images was anything but easy, at least for me. I was never good at it an I am still finding caches of mine and my father’s pictures and slides in “secret” places.
In 2002, my first digital camera appeared. The Sony Cybershot was no where near the Pentax Me Super but the future was cast. In last five years, I have averaged over 22,000 images per year and the DSLR and new camera do things the film camera never could. Organization of the images could be a problem but, because they are digital, it is easier with much better results. The biggest goals of good organization are being able to locate any image and the systems integration with the digital darkroom.
This presentation will look at several paths to organizational success including Adobe Creative Cloud and some alternatives. We will be looking at pros and cons of those approaches and what they can do for you. This will hopefully help you decide which is best for you. Even if you have a system, you might be able to improve your organizational scheme and workflow.
About Terry: After retiring from 40 years in the Science classroom, photography has become the focus of his life. It actually started in the early 1950s, with an Argus C-3 camera, a roll of Kodachrome film and the Colorado scenery. As a Biological Sciences student at Colorado State University in the mid 1960s’, he studied large format photography and macrophotography working with biological and architectural subjects.
Progressing from a darkroom in the upstairs bathroom to the digital revolution, in 2013, he formed Chaos Photo Inc. Teaching photography and the digital darkroom with workshops and personal consultation, specializing in Advanced Camera Techniques, Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and Topaz plugins. He does many presentations and workshops for photography clubs and organizations specializing in various types of photography, workflow, Lightroom and Photoshop. He judges many photographic competitions for clubs and various organizations. His personal work at the present time is mostly birds and wildlife but has a great appreciation all types of photography. Although competition not a major incentive, his images have won awards in various local and international competitions. www.chaoscolorado.com
