Editing 10 years of photos for a photo book | Canon EOS M50 Time-lapse


I was recently contacted to produce a high-end
photo book. The idea sounded interesting. Decided to go forth with that. After some thought, decided on a related to
Rock Cut State Park. It’s a park that I’ve been photographing for
many many years. I wanted to document the entire process of
finding the photos, selecting, and editing them. In a future video I’ll be showing off the
book itself, which I do not currently have. After spending many hours looking through
my photos, I found 6823 photos from 2010 to 2019 of Rock Cut State Park. So that’s a lot to go through! That’s 163 gigabytes of RAW photos. I used my editor of choice, Acdsee Photo Studio
Ultimate to go through photos. Label them and pull out the ones that I liked. My first round of selection ended up with
around 1000 photos. Still way too many. My second round, after pulling those 1000
out ended up with around 300 photos. At that point I was able to use those as the
source for the book itself. I decided on a 52 page book with 1:1 crops
and 2:1 crops. That left me with 40 photos I needed for the
book itself. With the 300 source photos I ended up with
around 60 edited photos. I was putting them in the book, seeing if
they worked well. If one didn’t work well I switched it out. In the end I had the 40 photos for
the final book. Now that the book has been sent out for printing
I’m looking forward to seeing that in physical form, making the video on the book itself. I’m Scott from Photography Banzai. I hope you enjoyed this video. With a quick look at the process of making
a photo book from many many years of photos. Hope you enjoyed this video. Thanks!
