It was obvious from the start that the hardest part of Rebranding would be the editing.
And that is the problem.
Having to choose between thousands of pictures you strived to take for hours or days even, distancing yourself enough to forget any emotions or memories attached to them, and becoming an impartial observer that can judge the work as if seeing it for the first time, is almost impossible.
If I were to do this again I would give the job to a professional editor, not out of laziness, but because I spend more than half of my time on doubting and second-guessing my choices from the first to the last edit.
A decision that now seems to be the only choice, is pairing the images with Portrait Orientation.
This is what I learned from my website editing experience in a few words:
– Let a professional editor help you with it.
– It is OK to leave out pictures that you love and think that are perfect. They are not.
You are just too emotionally involved to tell.
– Uniformity on the web is essential.
– Always think like the customer you would like to have.
