Developing A Photographer’s Workflow
123 Paularino Avenue
Costa Mesa, California 92626
One of the most common questions we get is related to workflow. “How do I process, catalog and manage all of these digital files I’m shooting?” It can be very frustrating if you’re not organized!
Our resident pro photographer, Dave Henry, will show you a few of the most popular image editing software tools he uses (Canon’s free Digital Photo Professional®, Adobe Bridge®, Adobe Lightroom® and Adobe Photoshop®) and share his thoughts on how each of them play a role in his day-to-day workflow.
Dave is a photojournalist and is used to processing thousands of images every single week so his experience will undoubtedly save you tons of time by adopting even just a few of his techniques or concepts. He’ll share with you his “Five Minute Edit” that he uses to streamline most of his image processing and his “Ethics and Photoshop” considerations.
Image processing is only half of the workflow process. The other half of the workflow process is “What do you do with the photos after I’ve processed them”.
When it comes to labeling, captioning, organizing and filing, that’s a whole new ballgame. You still need to be able to find a photo so searching and retrieving it is just as important. With over 2 million photos on file, we’re sure you will find a nugget here too.
There are many different ways to get from Point A to Point B, so Dave will share his insights with you on what works best for him.
After tonight’s presentation, you will surely pick up a few valuable tips to take home and consider using immediately.
Please keep in mind that tonight’s presentation is NOT designed to be an in-depth tutorial on Bridge, Lightroom, Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional, rather a look into the workflow of this photographer.
