The Post Processing
Back at the home office I retrieve my SD card from my camera, load the images onto my computer, create a folder with date and client name, and begin processing the images in Adobe Camera RAW and Photoshop. I make global adjustments in Camera RAW (color, exposure, clarity, etc.) and do minor adjustments in Photoshop (lens filter adjustments, etc.) and then size the image for the MLS. I take anywhere from 25 to over 60 photographs per photo shoot and process most of them for my client. Check out my short YouTube video that shows how I process each photograph, in a nutshell.
Being in the field is fun but I’m comfortable during the production process. I turn on music and get into a rhythm, it’s almost poetic. I get a lot of satisfaction by viewing my work in this manner and then sending the completed files (photographs) to my client. My clients know that I use Dropbox but maybe some of them wonder why – Dropbox supports the size involved in sending multiple files.
