Shawn Blanc’s iPad Photo Workflow

Shawn Blanc of The Sweet Setup skipped town this summer, spending a month with his family living in Colorado instead of his home in Kansas City.

The temporary digs meant packing light, so he took just his Leica Q camera and his iPad Pro for photography. In “My iPad Photography Workflow,” Shawn breaks down how he edits and manages his shots. For instance, although he captured Raw+JPEG images using the Leica, he found himself usually transferring (wirelessly) the JPEGs because they were more convenient.

It’s a good read, and, as he says at the end, a teaser for an upcoming mobile photography course.

PhotosApp.Expert on iPad Mobile Workflow

The iPad Pro is prompting us to revisit mobile photo workflows using an iPad, and PhotosApp.Expert has just published a great overview of options: The Quest for a Viable iOS RAW Workflow. Definitely check it out.

I have an article coming soon for Macworld about how the iPad Pro stacks up for iPhoto photo workflows; I’ll post a link when it’s published.

iPad Photo Workflow—The Mongol Rally

20130913-123027.jpg

Are you thinking about taking just an iPad on a trip? How about a driving adventure through Asia in an absurdly small car? Ben Long undertook the Mongol Rally and writes about his choice to bring only an iPad to work with his photos of the excursion: “Putting the iPad Photo Workflow to the Test: The Mongol Rally.”

Broken exhausts, punctured tires, lack of a good histogram—these are the kinds of problems an iPad-based photographer faces on an event such as the Mongol Rally, a charity road rally that I have been participating in for the last nineteen days.

I’m a fan of Ben’s work, and this article is excellent.

iPad Travel Workflow

I’m currently on vacation at Disneyland and have barely touched my laptop the whole trip. If I didn’t need it at the end of the trip (visiting folks in Glendale) I probably would have left the laptop home.

While I’m standing in line for a ride, I’m getting caught up using my iPhone and came across this piece by Dan Bailey detailing his iPad travel photo workflow. Good advice there.
