I travel a lot. Sometimes I’ve barely unpacked before I have to get it together for the next trip. Usually this leads to a frantic last-minute scramble to make sure I have all the necessary bits and pieces of gear organized and in working order.
By the time my bags are packed and weighed, the airport security line braved, and a zillion time zones flown through to arrive at my destination, all I can think of is jumping in the water. Unfortunately, this means that changing my camera settings to reflect the correct capture time often falls by the wayside.
It's only when I begin to catalog my new images in Lightroom that I realize the capture time is wrong. Not that it's the end of the world if the metadata is off by a few hours, but if I want to search images by date later on, I need to keep the capture date accurate, and suddenly a 1PM dive that's been recorded as 1AM the next morning makes a difference.
Luckily, it's a snap to adjust the capture date and time in Lightroom. Watch the short video below to find out how.
