Have you ever found yourself wondering exactly WHERE an image that you’ve taken is?
Why you seem to have about 5 different copies of the same file kicking about?
Or you’ve been sat looking at your image for the last ten minutes wondering exactly what adjustments you should be making? Whether you’ve done enough?
If that’s you, then a) you are not alone and b) the chances are you’re missing something incredibly crucial - a Lightroom workflow.
For photographers, the taking of the image is only the beginning. You then need to transfer them to your computer, back them up, edit them, and get these into a form where they can be used, viewed and shared.
Without a workflow in place, you’ll be doing different things at different times, which leads to images being scattered around in 5 different locations, all with different file names (or helpfully called IMG2068.CR2), and all with different editing styles applied.
The key to not getting into this mess is to get yourself an efficient workflow, so you’ll always know exactly what to do, when to do it, and how to keep it the same each time.
