Creating Your Photographic Workflow 2015

Photographic Workflow 2015

This week I will be presenting to the South Shore Camera Club.  I will be discussing workflow.  (That is as long as the New England weather holds out, we are expecting a blizzard).

Workflow seems to be a popular subject for photographers.  Making sense on how they should process images can be a challenge.

I learnt workflow through Scott Kelby’s book “The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book for Digital Photographers”.  (See sponsored link below).  He covers everything you need to know on workflow.  He uses Lightroom which I highly recommend as the tool for file management by photographers.

.

I was also asked to provide some detail on backing up my files.  “Backup” is a critical subject and something not everyone manages correctly.  I do not know what I would do if I lost all my images. A few years back we had a tornado watch in my part of MA.  A rare thing.  It actually touched down and you can still see the damage two years later.  Anyway, I ran home to be with my family, just in case.  As the sky color got weird, and the news reports said “seek shelter”, I grabbed my wife, child and hard drive of my images and we moved to a corner of the basement.  Yup that backup external hard drive was so important, I passed up many other important items in my home to save my images.

I now have offsite backup, just in case I cannot be home and some disaster takes out my image library.  (What is your backup strategy?)

Anyway, I am also attaching my presentation Photographic Workflow 2015 in case you want to take a look.  I’m still tinkering with it but this set should be good.  It is missing my jokes and demo but has enough info, I think, to help you get started.
