From now on I need to take more photos before I ship something off. This vase went to New York City recently, and I can't seem to find any photos of this vase on my computer other than this one. It was 13 inches tall and must have been difficult to get the photo in my cube and stand back far enough to get the whole vase in the photo. Oh, here's another one of it lying down. Neither photo is very good.
Maybe I have some photos in my laptop computer; I'll have to look. Anyway, I've been trying to organize my photos deciding which categories to put them all in. How do you organize your photos? Do you put them in folders according to the type, like vase, bowl, cup, plate? Or do you have folders which say it went to this gallery or that, or do you put them all in one big folder.
What names do you put on the pieces or do you give them inventory numbers? For instance this photo is called 'tall aqua vine vase'. I did make a couple of separate folders for 'pots in use', 'etsy', and then I also have 'inspiration', 'flowers' and 'photography'. But for my pottery it's getting to the point that I have to scroll through hundreds of photos just to find what I am looking for. There's more to being a potter than just designing and making the work, isn't there. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
