Project Development - Tips of methods

Hey People – I am having an issue that I hope some of you may be able to shed some light on (instead of capturing) – Get it?? ;)

…anyways, I’ve done several short-and-long term reportages since 2009 and have come back with a wealth of images and stories that are (still) waiting to be edited/told.

However, when confronted on how to put something meaningful together – a story, for that matter – I run into a series of self-defeating ideologies:

Practically:
1) How do I tackle a library of 3 – 4 k images and make something sensible?
2) How can I organize images/thoughts so there’s a coherent thread?
3) When you have 3k+ images, and you dwindle those down to 12 images – how can you realistically be with the massive amount of baby killing you’ve done?

Philosophically:
1) Has this been told already and who cares,
2) There already enough content clogging the ether – why add more?

I apologize if these questions seem to be coming from a neophyte – I am, for all practical purposes, still emerging as a photographer.

So any advice from the guys I know and those that I don’t about your methods, experiences, and insights would be grand – and hopefully it can help some of the other relatively green photographers trying to find a place in these times.

Feel free to answer all – some – or none of the questions posed. The overall tone of this thread is more to exchange methodologies and provide perspective.

Thanks, Grazie, Obrigato, Merci, Evhxaristo, Mh-goi, Gracias …
