Well what a week it has been, from photographing birds of prey on Wednesday, through to two fostering events on Saturday and to round it off a Christening on Sunday.
The key for me is to be organised and spending time finishing off retouching or editing the images taken from one assignment, before setting off on the next. With travel this may not always be the case, but I do aim to have all the images rated and then edited just as soon as I am able. This ensures that I do not build up a backlog of outstanding work, many people like to see the final images shortly after they were taken. Back when I started photography this was not the case as one had to send off the colour film to be developed and this took time, printing black & white in my darkroom was also time consuming.
In the internet age, people expect much shorter timescales and don't want to be waiting weeks for their images, printed materials will still take time, wall art and photo books still need to be sent off to the printers and people on understand this.
