Together, Debbie and I took over 2200 photos on the trip. I took approximately
400 digital photos using my video camera and Debbie shot over 1800 35mm prints
on nearly 60 rolls of film. Just thinking about choosing from all these images
to make a slide show was overwhelming.
So instead of combing over all our photographs, we narrowed the field by only
considering the digital pictures for inclusion in the slide show. Plus I was
so anxious to start working on it after returning from the trip, I did not
want to wait for Debbie's film to be returned from the lab. I could access
the digital pictures immediately from the camera so I got to work!
It was tempting to throw in every picture but we managed to pick a subset
that highlighted our trip. In retrospect, I probably should have waited for
Debbie's shots to get back from the lab because I think they came out lovely
and would have enhanced the slide show very much. On the other hand, there
turned out to be so many fantastic shots on her rolls, that we may have gone
mad choosing just 100 or so to use.
