I wanted to share with y'all my photo taking process...and how they get to the website...just in case you're wonder why it takes me so long sometimes.
1. On the course, I take a picture of your shooter number first, then take the shooting pictures. I get the listing of numbers/names so that I can sync up afterwards. I have been traveling to a lot of new places lately with a lot of shooters that I don't know...yet...so please wear your shooter number...where it's easy to see and I don't have to bother you to take a picture of it.
2. At the conclusion of the shoot, I upload them all to my computer and then rename to identify the shoot and location.
2. Then I manually "tag" (add meta data) each photo with your name (that I get from your shooter number) so that they can be searchable on my site. This is the most time consuming process so if I have shoots back to back this is why there is a delay in posting...but it allows you to type in your name to search for your photos and it helps me when someone calls looking for your pictures I can search my files...well worth the effort on the front end! I have some facial recognition software that works great on face shots but not so great when there's a gun in the way.
3. Add the event logo and Green Girl Logo to the pictures - yes I have an app for that. Then cull the photos that I don't want to post (or the ones you're glad I don't post)...like the pictures of the shooter numbers, bad angles, etc.
4. Upload to my site in the event folder - no surprise...I LOVE fast upload speed!
