Post-Processing & Workflow

Together, let’s unveil the magic of post-processing and building a workflow that showcases your unique style and elevates your photography to new heights.

Post-processing is a crucial but often overlooked aspect of creating stunning images. Like working with a camera, the more you can take the hardware and software out of your thought process, the better.

Demystifying Workflow

A well-designed workflow is like a roadmap that guides you through the post-processing journey, ensuring you extract the utmost from your photographic masterpieces.

Throughout this presentation, I will walk you through my tried-and-true post-processing workflow, revealing the secrets behind each step and the reasoning underpinning consistent and exceptional results.

Software Compatibility

The demonstration will be conducted using AACR (Adobe Camera Raw), which shares the same robust controls as Adobe Lightroom.

The principles and suggestions discussed apply to the primary processing capabilities of various platforms, including Capture One, Luminar, DXO, Affinity Photo, darktable, and even GIMP.

Here’s what you’ll walk away with:

The Real Power of Shooting in RAW: Unravel the true potential of shooting in RAW format, empowering you with unparalleled flexibility and creative freedom in post-processing.

Navigating Camera RAW Controls: Gain an in-depth understanding of the intricacies of Camera RAW controls, mastering each tool to harness its full potential.
