Learn to have a clear vision when you start editing your photos, and save hours in Post-Processing in Lightroom.
Look, we all know we got it pretty good with digital photography. Going digital has helped in so many ways: you get to see every image you make, hence more leeway, and of course you don’t have to mess with clunky film stock.
But that doesn’t mean digital systems have made all things better, or any easier. Now that you can shoot to your heart’s content — which for me means shooting 1000s of selfies! — you don’t have to worry about volume.
But like we all learned in elementary school: the more volume, the more substance. What this means is that you probably got thousands of thousands of files. Completely unorganized. Ridiculously scattered. And in awful need of organization.
To prove it to you, let’s be honest:
- Do you have a naming convention for your images? Something that includes information that will prevent you losing your image?
- Do you use flags, ratings, and labels that visually mark how far that image has come along in your workflow?
- Have you ever performed a risk analysis on your data management?
- Do you have data protection system in practice?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, I want to thank you for reading this far!
If not, then Gavin Gough’s The Photographer’s Workflow is the framework you’ll need for all those files in disarray. It will teach you how to shave HOURs of post-production time off your usual workflow.
Basically it means you’ll get to SNATCH Gavin’s robust post-production method, allowing you to move files from capture to output in the most effective and timely way possible.
But this isn’t about just saving time. You’ll learn the same post-production techniques that Gavin uses to create beautiful images. He reveals his methods for post-production that will help you achieve the most beautiful images in the quickest amount of time.
When I said effective I meant it. Gavin doesn’t shy away from details or any stage of post-production. You’ll be able to work much faster and securely with chapters like these:
