How It's Done
Saving Time in the Digital Darkroom
Finally, over a month after our return from Argentina, I’ve finished editing the images I shot. As always it’s been a serious job of work that has necessitated long hours in the digital darkroom. The satisfaction of seeing the finished image, especially as a print, makes it all worthwhile though, and I do enjoy the challenge of extracting the best from a shoot in Lightroom and Photoshop.
For every hour I spent behind the lens in the Quebrada de las Conches, the same is inevitably necessary hunched in front of the computer dealing with the results. Three weeks on the road shooting twice a day all adds up to a lot of RAW files to sort, select and process. But there’s no getting round it – the editing and post-production just takes time and can’t be rushed. In fact, compromising the success of a trip by not giving the loving care in post-production the RAW images I’ve worked so hard to capture demand would clearly be madness.
