Data Management / Workflow help
4 months ago

Hi, I am a beginner who normally just photographs when traveling (mostly), don't do PP, use iPhoto, etc. But I just bought an a6000 and starting to get more into it, hoping to use either Aperture or LR . Maybe Aperture will get some updates on Monday haha. I am on the trial for LR and I dont really like its UI... coming from iPhoto.

Anyways, my problem is that I just came back from a trip and shot around a 1000 photos, RAW+JPEG, so 2000 files and lots of gigabytes... I've never really shot RAW and I just realized that it is gonna be taking a lot of my space! I have quite limited HD space as of now and trying to figure things out. I am currently deleting poor pictures and some copies. What do you guys suggest I do? I am thinking that I should sort out with ratings, delete the RAWs for say 2-3 stars, and keep both for 4-5 stars? I heard Aperture is better with RAW+JPEG management as it groups it in 1 photo, whereas LR will display both, is this true?

Also, when working with RAW, do I have to give other special consideration to the PP? I normally just adjust colors, shadows, etc. I think I have to manually do De-noising? anything else?

Lastly, about PP. I know there isnt a 'science' to it, but how would I get more educated about this? I just crop, and use sliders and most things until I am happy with it... and learning brushing... I have no structure at all... I think most of you might know what I mean, through your beginning days.
