What is it?
Traveling Raid One Hard Drive Case - Raid One or JBOD are the only RAIDs I Trust Software backup solution for Mac Software Backup solution for PC and Mac Monitor calibration by x-rite - you can also try the Color Monkey series. Use only the JBOD enabled version - get the thunderbolt connection (super fast) The hard drive toaster or drive bay dock for docking internal drives. Scans everything fast. Get rid of your paper and be completely searchable. I use the daisy-chain, stackable CF card readers (only available used now) I use the large Intuos 5 Tablet, the bigger the monitor, the bigger the tablet should be. Seagate or Hitachi are my preference. Western Digitals are ok. Just backup. The Seagate GoFlex have the best connection by far. LaCie Rugged drives are ne. The most ergonomic keyboard replicator. Easily programable and comfortable. The most powerful keyboard replicator. Can activate LR Presets with a keystroke. All post-production starts and ends in Lightroom Heavy retouching is done in Photoshop only when I am charging the client. Plug-ins like Silver Effects Pro 2 make serious effects simple in LR and in Photoshop For quick stylistic looks without much effort I use Snapseed on my Mac I use my own extensive collection of Lightroom Presets to speed through LR Workow This is Canons best camera yet (I dont own the 1DX, so maybe thats great also) Canons new Speedlite with built in radio TLL Canons new Speedlite radio transmitter and ash controller. These are my favorite AA rechargeable batteries (they stay charged on the shelf) The simplest, quickest, lightest little stand on the market. The faster the better, with as much RAM as you can afford. Canon 16-35L 2.8, 24-70L 2.8, 70-200L IS 2.8, 50L 1.2, 80 1.8 Think Tank makes well thought out, secure bags.

Im just giving you my opinion here. I dont offer tech support on the above items, nor do I make any money from you buying these products. So if you have issues with them, call the company that made the product, not me. I dont even play tach support on TV...

Workflow
Refer to the following workflow charts for a refresher of my image pipeline and computer system setup.

Your computer files must be organized to enjoy a secure and efficient workflow. If you do not organized your computer, you will never experience great workflow.

THE ULTIMATE LIGHTROOM WORKFLOW

The Image Pipeline


You can use my image pipeline as a starting point for your workflow. Take the time to sketch out your image pipeline. Youll see where things get complicated and where you can shave of time and confusion. Then re-sketch it as you improve the pipeline.

Your image pipeline may be very different from mine because your studio may be different, you may shoot different things or provide different products, but from start to finish, all image pipelines should have major similarities if they are working well. Efficiency is efficiency whether it is in a photography studio or a shoe factory.

Backups and Hard Drives Lorem Ipsum Dolor Set Ahmet In Condinmentum. Nullam Wisi Acru Suscpit Raid 1 systems allow for what is called aIpsum mirror of your Consectetuer viviamus Lorem Dolor primary drive. This is the only hardwired systems I will Set Ahmet. Lorem Ipsum Dolor Set Ahmet use. Mirrored drives can be replaced in seconds without In Wisi Acru Suscpit Consectetuer any computer knowledge whatsoever. Other systems, viviamus. require complicated restoration and are volatile at best
(when buying them in our price-range). A mirrored drive is the simplest, affordable option out there. You can also choose a JBOD drive system where each drive is registered as its own drive and then use a software backup system like Super Duper or Retrospect to create your mirrored drive on whatever time table you choose.
