@IndieWebCamp Austin, facilitating a session on All Things Photos.
E.g. taking photos, curating, editing, posting.
My incremental #indieweb #photo workflow:
📷 take photos in the moment, but not post*
🖼 curate photos, e.g. delete duplicates or non-HDR versions (or keep the non-HDR version if it was sharper, less blurry, or if the HDR versions had weird motion artifacts)
❤️ favorite photos, in the iOS Photos app, that I want to actually consider posting publicly, or perhaps uploading e.g. to a wiki
✍🏻 edit photos, e.g. rotate & crop, especially favorited photos, to align the horizon, crop out extraneous/distracting things, etc.
👇🏻 choose a favorited photo from that day as my main photo to post
📝 write a narrative caption based on that photo
📓 more photos: include more favorited photos if they make sense as part of the narrative, perhaps seek out more (non-favorited) photos to help illustrate the narrative
📮 post that photo or multiphoto post (its own process)
♡ unfavorite the photos I posted, except those I might want to view or show to friends later
I’m looking to simplify my process where I can, as it often takes me up to half an hour to actually get from curating my photos to posting a particular (multi)photo post!
*I don’t post photos in the moment any more in order to stay present in whatever I’m actually doing IRL. Instead at "in between times" like standing in line, or on transit, I take incremental steps towards publishing photos.
