Last night at the Stonybrook Camera Club here in Wrentham, MA, (www.stonybrookcc.com) I had a chance to present a class on workflow. In the planning of this workshop, I decided to focus on helping the photographer define their own workflow by identifying the elements important in creating their own. I outlined 6 major steps from capturing the image to delivering the finished product. The ideas behind each step came from a conversation I had online at the Canon EOS Digital Photography Forum on LinkedIn along with research across the web plus my own point of view.
My workflow centers around Adobe’s Lightroom so I also have to send a thank you to Scott Kelby for writing the book on Adobe Light Room workflow:
I just posted the slides on my website at http://www.robde.com/Workflow.pdf. It is available for use under creative commons license.
For those wondering how the presentation went. For the most part I think very well. I think the Powerpoint posted was well received. I did have a few “Murphy Law” issues. My projector overheated prior to starting because it was placed in a closed cabinet and my Lightroom catalog became corrupted which never happened before. Luckily I had a backup.
