Renaming the image files in my photo workflow

No matter how you manage your photos, they will always be files on a computer. As long as we’ll have to deal with files, we must ensure that each name refers undoubtedly to one expected image.

Just another photography blog…

And I am proud of it. For the last last months, I posted some of my work trough social medias (mostly Facebook and Google+) and some tips and tutorials on the main site Là Bas Land. Social medias are great to spread the word, but less to show a portfolio. Là Bas Land is mostly dedicated for french audience and the photography subject is buried under other stuff.

So, trough this blog, I will focus on photography and maybe other artistic subjects. I will post detailed articles about some shots, a blog is not supposed to be a simple gallery. I will also post photographic centered tutorials and tips.

I wanted to wait to have something really neat with the perfect theme and design, but finally, it will be certainly better to publish the content and work on the design later.

If you want to contact me, you can use any of the links on my profile.
