I'm in the situation now that i have to bring some order in my folder structure. Up to now I had a single folder for each shoot, made up by the date and a short description for the shoot. For example: 20151015 Mountain shoot with fuffy
This quickly became a mess, and i need to begin with a new and better structure. What would be a good folder structure that lets find pictures quickly depending on model, subject, year, stock/assignment/private life, etc.?
Is it Worth spending time keywording and cataloguing all pictures in lightroom for each shoot? In what way can this simplify searching the pictures? I would like to find a good workflow that covers folderstructure, download process, cataloguing, editing (seen as step, not going into the details.. I would rather like to see something like "open in lightroom, base editing, and then menu/edit in Photoshop" or something like that), searching for files.
I expect the answer to be sort of a tutorial for beginners.
