Don’t edit all your photos at once!

When you come back from holidays you may be tempted to start editing all of your photos on your computer. While it’s a great way to reflect on your recent adventures, I always take my time in editing photos so I can truly bring out the best parts of each photo.

I alluded to this in a previous post where I said to “marinate” your images so your feelings don’t play a role in your editing process.

When we are so caught up in the moment, we tend to remember things in a more exaggerated way, letting our minds fantasize more. If you wait a while before editing your photos, however, you will come back to them without any bias as to how you remembered that moment, thereby allowing you to edit them to reflect the true beauty of the moment.

Even holding off for a couple days will make a noticeable difference in how you edit them. Don’t just take my word on this though. Try it out yourself and you’ll see how a small change like this can make a large improvement to your images.
