I’ve set myself a target of sorting 100 “analogue” photos a day. If I stick to the schedule I could finish the cull within a year or two. As expected, I’ve come across shots of people and places I have little recollection of. Also, photos I remembered as being quite good now look mediocre. Conversely, shots that I had never given a second glance to now don’t look that bad. How time fades the memory.
I’m not making much progress with the tidy up of my old snaps. I’ve only worked through approximately 500 trannies, which leaves a few tens of thousands to go! I’ve found a few gems, but also an awful lot of rubbish. What has surprised me is how technically competent I was back in the old days when shooting studio portraits. Far more so than in recent times. In the digital era it has been more about maximum flesh and less about technique.
