I didn’t even realize this was something I did until I looked back through my albums and saw that they have ALL been rearranged! You’re probably thinking “Ok, with all that you could be doing, WHY are wasting time ARRANGING Facebook images?!”. Well, I think it comes down to this. I LOVE design…. and visually, I NEVER want too many HEAVY or dark images clumped together and I also don’t want too many black and whites to be close together when people are viewing the album! I know, it’s embarrassing! But hey! My facebook albums look pretty good!!
So if you notice on these examples below, the B&W’s are separated evenly and the heavy/light images are separated evenly so that when you look at the overall album, it’s a beautiful, cohesive blend of the my BEST images from Josh and Amanda’s day!
Something else that I’m picky about is the amount of images in each album on facebook! I try to upload 16 images for engagements, 24 images for weddings and 8-12 images for anything else that I shoot. Why the strict numbers? Well, again, my OCD is kicking in! I want to feel organized and I also don’t want to share the entire blog post on Facebook because then my viewers would have no reason to visit the blog… and the blog is where you can really get to know me. So deep down, I my OCD tendencies actually stem from a marketing strategy!
You’ll noticed in this example that Natalie’s navy sweater images are spaced apart pretty evenly because those are heavier images. By arranging them like this, it makes the whole engagement session look cohesive!! I know, you’re probably shaking your head and saying “Oh Katelyn…. this is just too much”. And I know it is… but I actually really enjoy it! ha! So there’s your random fact about Katelyn for the day… she’s weird and OCD!
Well I’m off to CNU to teach a photography course so happy Thursday to you all and if you’re near me, enjoy the beautiful weather!!!! And ps. One last example…. see how the red barn shots are evenly spaced?! I’m telling you… I’m one picky girl!! If you didn’t see this last eshoot, you’ll have to check it out! Cherry Blossoms are my new favorite backdrop!!
