Best practices with Lightroom libraries
Or perhaps, how do you organize your photos in Lightroom 3?
I got a feeling that the way I do it is not very convenient.
The flow that I do on every new set of photos is:
- Copy the photos from the camera to a new folder on the HD (e.g. to C:\Photos\Bobs_bday_2010).
- Create a New Catalog, and save it to the same directory where the photos are.
- Import all photos from the directory to this catalog.
Does it make sense? Should I use catalogs for photos organization, or should I rather use something else? Should I create a new catalog for each new set of photos, and where to save all these catalogs?
