Notes from a Photo Session and a Workflow
My incredible husband and the stunning Tamika have given me a lot of work to do...Just a smattering from Sunday's shoot for the Fall Collection and my first edits--We worked in the Camellia House at the arboretum on Long Island, one of my favorite places...Tamika was such a joy to work with and I think Jim captured her beauty and the still winter light so beautifully.
Now comes the rest: I am completely self-taught when it comes to photo-editing (yes, I do all that stuff!) and I'm not sure I ever know what I'm doing...trying out Adobe Lightroom (does anyone use it?) and trying to get into a workflow that makes sense. I can't take my eyes off some of these and the raw files are incredible but I've already lost a lot turning them in jpgs...anyway, enough tech talk (I just think I'm so cool talkin' the talk like that...and we have a 'still' shooting session on Friday...(more opportunities to talk cool).
I think I better come back to these after a few hours to make the tough decisions: what becomes the postcard, what goes into the lookbooks, what becomes a poster, what should I trash, what did I trash that is probably the money shot (can I say that here?) etc etc....?
Any votes for a favorite? How do you manage your workflow?
