I have 320 images of Tonya Z, I don’t have the time to polish all of them so now it’s time to play favorites.

20140406_TZ_S01_12a20140406 – Tonya Z Set 01 image 12

Since all the previews are already on Dropbox, I use the favorites ‘star’ feature of the mobile version of Dropbox to tag my favorite images.

This lets me filter the images at a touch of a button. My goal with the first round is to highlight the ones I really like. I’m aiming for about half but I would be happy with 50-60 images.

My first pass on Tonya Z’s images gives me 56.

(Set_number:image_number, image_number,…)

  • 1:12
  • 3:7,14,15
  • 4:1,4,5,6,12,14
  • 5:3,10,14,16
  • 6:1,5,6,10
  • 7:1,6
  • 8:1,3,5,12,14
  • 9:8,12
  • 12:10
  • 13:6,12,13,14
  • 14:2,14
  • 15:7,8
  • 16:7,19
  • 17:4,8,9
  • 18:3,6,7,9,14
  • 19:2
  • 20:4
  • 21:1,3,9,11
  • 22:3
  • 23:4,5,7

Not all sets make the first cut.

With my 56 filtered favorites I once again view them in Dropbox. Only this time I tap the star to release an image from the favorites.

My next round is to bring the number of images down to 20, then 10 and finally 5.

Top 20

  • 3:7,15
  • 5:14
  • 6:6
  • 7:1
  • 8:1,12
  • 9:8
  • 12:10
  • 13:12,13
  • 14:2
  • 15:7,8
  • 16:7
  • 17:9
  • 18:9
  • 19:2
  • 21:3
  • 23:4

Going from 20 to 10 is a painful cut, I’ve already formed attachments with my top 20.

I have an idea of what images might make it to the final 5.

  • 19:2

These final 5 are the ones I’m going to polish and put into my portfolio.

I chose my final five based on expressions, light and creativity.
