So to show people how I edit a bout photo shoot and also give a rough indication of the time to do it, I time-lapsed my post-production workflow. It isn't something I would normally do, but thought it might be educational for others + it was interesting to review myself afterwards.
My Process Overview
- Import all the images into a single folder called 0. Original
- Select all images and reject them
- Go to first image in the set and review. If it's a keeper, then unflag it, else move on. Repeat till the end of the set.
- Once culling is complete, I create a new folder called 1. Rejected
- Select all remaining images that are rejected and move them into the Rejected folder I just created.
- Select 0. Original folder and start editing on the first image.
- eep editing each image and rejecting them if they are as good as I thought they where. Before moving on, if not rejecting the image then give it a rating. Usually 1 star as passable but up to 5 if I think it's really rad.
- Once finished, move the newly rejected photos
- Upload to my online gallery and social media
I use presets to speed my editing up and a lot of copy & pasting of setting from one image to the next.
