Hi fellow AP/ers. I have just been doing a tidy up of my photos as over the last 3 yrs or so I have accumulated some 1.6 TB of photos. A large follow of them are the raw images. I find myself struggling with should I keep these old shots. At the time I thought they were pretty good but as we know, over time we developer a skill and a lot of those old images just dont cut it.
Do we keep a collection of them as a reference for our journey in photography when they server no really other purpose apart from consuming vast amounts of hard disk. There is a point in time I think when my photos are worthy of keeping.
Do I keep them all
Do I keep only a selection of them as a reminder of where I came from
Do I archive them on another drive and store them for a time capsule and future reference - they will be interesting to someone one day, maybe in 200 yrs. or
Do I just bit the bullet and delete them
Caveat - some photos are personally historical like those of the big flood here in the Lockyer Valley, so obviously we keep those.
I am very keen to hear how others have dealt with this situation as I am sure anyone that has been seriously into photography would be in the same realm.
