Approaching a Big Shoot

by James Duncan Davidson

Starting tomorrow, I'll be shooting the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco. It's the 3rd year in a row I've shot this show, and I know from experience that a very challenging conference to shoot. Web 2.0 Summit is a single track event with short sessions and more than one thing happening at once all day long. Not only are the big names going to be on stage, they'll be in the audience and out in the hallways. And every possible shot is important.

I'm doing a lot of music festivals, which are a bit like this. But I don't make a lot of folders, just new folders per day. Instead, I make a set of keywords in the same way you make folders, and use them when I import to Lightroom. All the artists who are going to play, the different venues, etc.

Anyway, thanks for the tip, I will try out your tecnique to see if it suits my kind of shooting.
