What is My General Photography Workflow?

It’s a fact I’d rather be making photographs out in the field rather than sitting at a computer working in a digital darkroom. This is probably the reason I have so many unedited photos still sitting in my 10 year old archive. That being said, here’s how my workflow is setup!

  1. I go on a photoshoot which is what I love doing most.

  2. I open Adobe Lightroom on my portable mac to edit raw files and convert to Jpeg!

  3. I sometimes use Photoshop to resize images only for web.

  4. Or I export most images (full-size) to my iPhone via Photo Transfer iPhone app.

  5. I do further editing with Instagram’s awesome filters. ;) This pisses-off most purist photographers! :P

There you have it.. It’s pretty simple and straight-forward! I’d like to find an excellent WordPress plugin to auto magically resize my photos upon upload. That would be ideal… I haven’t discovered a really high quality plugin to do this!?

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments!

Hipstamatic & Iphoneography

I’m still at a loss for words about my newly acquired addiction to taking photos with a phone. I’ve got the iPhone 4S and it’s addicting. The apps from iTunes are great. Some of them over-process the images though but I’m really liking Hipstamatic. I’m just trying to figure out how to incorporate this photographic portability into my main workflow. This is something I’m taking seriously after hearing stories about photo-journalists using mobile devices to capture important moments. You’re going to start seeing mobile shots on here. It’s apart of the technological evolution of photography!
