Taken by trees

Taken by trees

Taken by trees

Taken by trees

It's official. I have zero space left on my internal hard drive. And about 100 gigs of outfit photos.


Everyday, I come in with about 50 photos, which equals 100 files and then I go through and pick out the few I'm going to use and leave the rest to "go through later".

How many photos do you usually take? How many of those do you save? Am I the only one with a gargantuan portion of their hard drive lost of outfit photos?

: ) heheh the hubs always gets on my case about deleting "un-necessary photos" So I try to be good about it. Since usually only one or two photos are worth keeping.
I like the tree shots : ) and the band Taken by trees : )

love the tights! i take about 35 each morning, and i delete all of the ones i don't use for my blog.

hah ai had over 10 000 photos on my mac and then it started working slower and slower !

Haha I love that first picture! I can't deal with taking outfit photos.. the times I tried I ended up with so many awful shots I couldn't really handle it. Definitely more than 50!

Sara C said...

Even though I'm new at this, I've been trying really hard to chop out the so-so photos right away. If its not a sure-fire contender for going up on my blog, its out! At least, so far...


I love everything about this outfit! The colors, the scarf, the patterned tights--Epic win!

Mimi said...

i love these photos, especially the on of you hiding behind the tree. and i hate it when my photos fill up everything - this reminds me, i should go through them and delete the ones i don't need. have a great week!

That's a lot of photos! You always take such creative ones. I typically save only 1 of the bunch and delete the rest.

Nilcha's Fashion Chronicles said...

perfect pictures!
love the tights, look sexy!

Eyeliah said...

that first photo is adorable, I only keep the photos that make it on the blog :)

Casee Marie said...

I'm absolutely in love with the tights! I need to get my butt to Payless. I haven't been there in ages, and clearly I'm missing out.

I've never done an outfit post, but I have the problem of taking way too many pictures of things just to make sure I got a good shot and I never delete any of the "extras". It's terrible!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

What a fun first photo!

Marta said...

love the first two shots!
also, i take plentyhood of photos and sometimes hardly any is good enough to be posted...

Frances Joy said...

First, I love, love, love that dress and scarf - the whole outfit, really, but especially those pieces.

Second, this may soon be me. I only take about 15 pictures a day, but I hate deleting them unless I absolutely hate them. I've been saying that I'll "go through" the pictures, and I haven't - I'm just too overwhelmed.

Amber Blue Bird said...

very cute photo shoot...I like the pics of you hiding behind the tree.

Daniela said...

lovely tights. A little surprised they were from Payless!

Vanessa said...

I have a strict must-delete policy, but I've got trigger finger. I have to sort between 40 to 75 photos each day. I post 2-5, save those and delete everything else. It's so tricky figuring out this kind of stuff as a newish blogger!
(I like the creative tree shots!)

Lorena said...

These are such great pictures... I adore that scarf.
I have to say I usually take not more than 6 pictures every morning. On weekends maybe a little more.
I usually only keep half of the pictures as blogger stores them in the Picasa albums.

BenchesandChandeliers said...

i keep the ones i use for the blog, upload them on to photobucket and the delete the rest.

Your title: Do you listen to Victoria Bergsman? Lol. She's got a great voice!

Oh gosh. I need an external hard drive because my photos are taking up most of my space! When I edit the photos, I edit and save them in their original sizes AND keep the unedited version too... so I essentially am multiplying everything I have. 100gb, though? Phew! That is a LOT!!

I love the scarf, those sexy tights, and the booties!

Kelly said...

Ha, I love your "peeking around the tree" picture. And the pattern on your scarf!

When I take outfit photos I usually take a crap ton - like 50 - then go through them, save and post the ones I like, and delete the rest. Every once in a while if there is a picture I particularly like (one I posted or not), I save it just to have. I am so unphotogenic so often, it's nice to have a little collection of pictures that I actually like!

Alli (One Pearl Button) said...

My hard drive is definitely dominated by photos, although I'm pretty good at getting rid of the outfit shots that don't make it to the blog (and I'm lazy, so I usually only take 10 of each outfit). I shoot A LOT of general photos, though, and I've started shooting RAW+JPG, which takes up crazy amounts of space. I recently bought this for back ups - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182196 - since buying hard drives is a lot cheaper than buying external drives. I really like it, so far!

Modesty is Pretty said...

Love the tights! I usually take 6 or less shots and then after I'm done blogging I delete ALL of my pictures! =D

Eli said...

I always at least get rid of the obviously blurry ones, you're gonna need an external hard drive!

Jessica said...

I definitely have more photos than I care to admit. I should really go through and delete many of them, but it seems like such a chore!

Your first photo made me giggle after reading your title - it made me think that you were being eaten by that tree. ;-)

Ali said...

Haha, oh dearrr, oh dear! No more memory?! Usually I get about 50ish photos, too.. and then I pick the few I want to keep and drag them to one side of my desktop and then keep a few others I like but won't post and delete the rest. xD Usually I keep 10 pictures. Perhaps Lyddie will have to go through her harddrive this weekend? Yayyyy!

Very pretty scarf and tights! I like the tight/booties combo. :D

Kristin said...

Do you have an external hard drive? I fill my computer up with dude photos until the hubs freaks and downloads them to our hard drive. HA!

I used to take a lot of photos but then I got tired of all the sorting and having to wade through them on my (old old) computer, so nowadays I (try to) limit myself to 2-3 self portraits and maybe 5-7 outfit shots a day.

You have a great knack at finding good spots for your photoshoots, though - much more interesting than a blank wall or a boring office (like mine often are).

The purple dress is really pretty! It looks great on you and the scarf is a nice pop of pattern.

You know what is funny? I wore those exactly SAME booties yesterday to work!!!
