Sub categories for Camera -File

Hi Every One 
I know this a basic question but do you put your Camera files into sub categories
for example

Personal
Wedding-Engement
Portraits 
Commercial 

etc

or do you have one level and name the folders

2018-01-01-Barb-Wedding 
2018-02-02-Bill-Familly-Portrait 
2018-02-03-Acme-Productrs

Thanks for the help

  • On my hard drive I have:

    Event Photos
    Personal Photos Raw (the processed ones go to a different drive)
    Volunteer Event Photos
    Practice

    and then under the first three I have sub folders with the event/client name and date.

    Dave,

    Something similar to you.

    Main Folder (My Pictures)

    Sub-Folders:
    Weddings
    Family
    School Class Photos
    Sports Team Photos
    Corporate
    Real Estate

    Then Sub-Folders for each individual.

    eg:

    Weddings:
    Mary Smith_Billy-Bob Jones SAT 13th June 2017_Harbour Marina

    For me, I put their names first, easier to find, (for me), then date, then location of Ceremony

    But yeah, similar.
