*UPDATE* – To better showcase my photo editing workflow I’ve created a weekly “Let’s Edit” series here on the site. Find out all the info on this series here!
It’s one thing to get out and take photos, it’s another thing entirely to keep them all organized, trust me I have folders filled with photos that I don’t remember ever taking! So this week I’d like to talk to you about the photo editing workflow that I use to keep new photos appearing before you almost every day of the year.
I’ll start off simply saying – this ain’t easy folks! To be honest I’m not even convinced that workflow is a teachable aspect of photography. Sure I can point you to what works for me, but these things might not work for you, and if that’s the case then that’s the case. We’re all different, shooting different things, using different software, with different goals in mind, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take pieces of this away and tweak your own workflow a bit. After all that’s how I taught myself how to do things!
Of course, as with everything this is an organic process, something that grows over time. The more photographs I process the more I learn about how to edit and how to move through my workflow.
To go a little further I wanted to showcase the steps I took from import to final processed photograph for the shot you saw earlier today. You did see Today’s Daily Photo Right? It was one of the four versions featured in this video below – which one do you like best?
The process seen in this video took about 30 minutes in real time (I was moving pretty fast because I knew I was recording it), but I’ve still done you a favor and compressed it to 2 minutes and put it to music. Enjoy!
