Here’s a question about this. Back in Jan 2017, I was working with a client and using the long Digital naming convention for each file (month/day/year/who-what-where-when etc ie 07_01_1980_Morgan’s 16th birthday_GreenLeafCafe_Boston_MA). Two things I’m finding, three years later : (1) Custom naming is too time consuming and few clients will be willing to pay for the many many additional hours of work, and (2) naming seems to be a superfluous step and can’t be seen on your iPhone or in an APL. No one really looks for photos based on names.

With that said, if I do a maintenance/subscription service with this client, moving forward the naming will be inconsistent with how I was naming back in 2017. Will that inconstancy seem strange in a client’s growing collection? Should there be any concern there?
