In the context of digital photography, workflow refers to the steps taken to handle and image after it has been captured. Depending on the photographer, a variety of workflow (and software) is used.

When I am done with an event or a photography job, my workflow begins

  • Transferring the RAW files to workstation
  • Archiving original RAW files
  • Categorizing and selecting photos from the series shot
  • Adjusting exposure and light in the selected RAW captures
  • Converting adjusted RAW capture to a format that can be processed by an image editor.
  • Making further corrections to color and exposure
  • Sharpening the image and reducing noise as needed
  • Creating versions for specific uses at specific sizes
  • Archiving the various finished versions of the photo
