comment When data gets deleted from your Recycle Bin, what happens to it?
@Yaitzme moving a file does not generally move the contents of a file. If the source and destination are on the same partition, only the name of the file is moved (i.e. a pointer to the file is added to the new directory, and deleted from the old directory). The data can stay in the same place. Only when you move a file across partitions do you need to copy all the contents.

comment Mass migration of EXIF GPS data (a.k.a. Escape from iPhoto)
@BenGross Perl's glob function splits the given pattern at whitespace into subpatterns. Putting quotes around the argument should fix that—I updated my code accordingly. I don't have sufficiently deep knowledge of the parsing rules to make the same fix in the bash version.

This question is a bit too far into the “gimme teh codez plz” region, but I think I can help you solve the problem yourself. First, a few important questions: ① Do you have any programming experience (if yes, of what form)? This helps targeting explanations. ② Can you guarantee the only difference between photo paths is Mod changing to Orig, and the extension changing from jpg to NEF? ③ Is the depth of the photo paths constant, or do some event folders have sub-folders that should be visited? ④ Do you want to use Perl or Bash?
