I never really grasped the concept of “workflow” when reading or hearing about it in other photographers’ work. And not to be misleading, I am on winter vacation still, so I am not going all out like some pro’s seem to. (The first day of setting up Lr4, I was appalled at how much time I sat in front of my computer screen.)
But getting into a rhythm has definitely allowed for more of a creative side to take over rather than focusing on the nitty-gritty logistics!
My family spent a few days out at Mammoth, a ski resort in Mammoth Lakes, California. I didn’t take advantage of the first day’s great weather; clear skies really are valuable. Long story short, I decided not to take any photo equipment to the peak (or outside for that matter) on day two because it was snowing. (Skiing takes priority over photographing unfortunately…)
I’m not sure how conventional this technique is, but on our departure, I rolled down the windows and had a safari shoot in this winter wonderland. I don’t think iPhones are capable of capturing 1/4000 of a second (are they?)
This photo of the church had me puzzled. I was thinking B+W would look good for a lot of these shots while I was in the car. But if I converted this particular shot, I think it would require cropping out the telephone polls. Plus, I like the contrast of the blue sky!
This lost shot had some significant edits; Creamtone preset, then a conversion into B+W (which further reduced orange and red levels in gray scale?), and some desaturation in the upper half of the photo.
PLEASE DO NOT USE THESE (OR ANY) OF MY PHOTOGRAPHS WITHOUT MY CONSENT.
