Recursive photo editing — this means:
As you shoot new photos and create new photo albums, every once in a while go back to all the older photos, and make a newer (tighter) edit of your old photos, and make a new album of them.
For example, when looking back at the photos of the birth of Seneca, I created 7 photo albums (Sen v1-Sen v7). I then imported all these photos into Lightroom Classic (add photos), and then re-edited the photos.
Then I exported it into a ‘new’ folder (Sen v8) which is a tighter edit of all the previous edits I made (from v1-v7):
Never stop editing
Then the general concept is this:
Keep making new photos, keep editing them, but keep re-editing older photos, and continually distill your photos, your portfolio, and your photo stream!
