I have been needing to standardize on my Keywording and rating and culling strategies. I use lightroom to go through my pics and usually upon import I apply some basic keywords but I am not sure if I am following the best strategy. What words do you tag your pictures with? Do you keep specifics like the place or building, the city? What about the state? Or a description of the photo (I.e. Landscape, sunset, pano, etc.)? How do you initially sort and/or rate your pictures? I use the pick/unflag/reject feature of LR a lot but dont take much advantage of the stars. I use the color labels to sort out categories (blue for stitching into panos, red for blending into HDR) but feel I need to come up with a better way to more accurately sort the pictures so I can better focus my time on the pictures worth going over closely and not waste too much time on lost causes or pics I don't really end up liking. How do you handle all this? I should mention that I just shoot as a hobby and don't need the overkill keywording that stock photographers use, nor do I generate thousands and thousands of images to sort through on professional shoots.
