When out on a long days shoot it is easy to forget exactly what has been shot that day.
With digital photography there is a very simple solution. Get into the habit of shooting the first shot of a series of a label or a sign that tells you exactly what you are shooting. For example this shot below was my first shot.
Subsequent shots I then knew were of a Clematis Omoshiro.
This tip works with any type of sign, label, information point etc. It works well with travel photography too. Remember take the first shot of the sign, the rest of the subject.
When you come to a new subject just take the first photograph of the sign or label the rest of the photographs of the subject. This technique makes it much easier to caption your images when editing.
