This past fall, I went to Bhutan for a two week trip and took several thousand pictures. I finally finished processing the images and I just put up a gallery of my Bhutan pictures. The major locations I visited included Thimphu, Paro, Punakha, Phobjikha valley, and Wangdue Phodrang. I can say that Bhutan is an awesome country to visit for photography. The small Buddhist country is steeped in tradition and I had no shortage of subjects with all of the religious festivals and sights.
It took me a little longer than I expected to process my images because I’ve been experimenting with my workflow. I normally use iView MediaPro for cataloging my images but this time I tried using Lightroom instead for captioning and keywording. I really like Lightroom but it also has a number of limitations that make it an imperfect digital asset management (DAM) solution as well (such as an inability to automatically sync meta-data across multiple versions of the same picture). I’m hoping version 3.0 of Lightroom will fix these issues.
