How I Edit Photos When Travelling

I love travelling, and I’m so lucky that my job has taken me to some epic places around the world. Obviously it’s important for me to have all the tools I need to do my job, but it’s just as important to be able to travel light.

Over the past year, I’ve downsized and streamlined my travel workflow massively, whilst at the same time, increasing my time efficiency, and I thought I’d share my process with you lot.

The majority of people see a photograph as a true and realistic depiction of a scene or person. What they might not be aware of is that it's actually an illusion. Real life is three dimensional. We can see distances due to having two eyes, which also allows us to determine whether things have depth or mass. A photograph is a two dimension interpretation of a three dimensional scene. To compensate, photographers use all manner of tricks to capture either the look and feel of real life, or to create a fantasy world. Either way, it's all an illusion.

Workflow : JP Omari

I was commissioned to shoot some images to promote JP's StreetFunk, a Brighton based dance company. I'd known JP for a while, having worked with him before. He's a breakdancer, who also featured on the BBC's Strictly Dance Fever programme in 2006. Even during the first phonecall from JP, I knew what I wanted to do with him. He told me he wanted some edgy shots to help promote his business in the local area. I told him I was going to get him "jumping over Brighton Pier". He didn't believe me, but was up for giving it a go!

Validation

I'm often asking all you people out there what it is you'd like me to blog about, and every time I get asked about the same types of subjects, workflow, equipment, techniques. So I tried to work out why... As photographers, we're often trying to find a benchmark as to how good we are. Sure, we can ask friends, but they give us biased opinions. It's hard to get constructive critiques from peers, so we're often left with self evaluation... which is usually the worst kind! So how does this relate to people asking me how I do what I do? It's simple... Validation.

Workflow : Process

A lot of people keep asking me to write a blog about my workflow, so here it is, but before i start, i should point out that a lot of my jobs are different and as such have a different workflow. Some jobs (particularly magazine clients) require little planning, and no retouching as the publishers often have their own in house retouchers. Some jobs don't need any planning other than knowing my subject matter. Each job is different, and is approached in a different way, which helps keep things interesting! :) Planning Before a shoot I always do a bit of background planning on my subject. Obviously if I've worked for the same client several times, this becomes less necessary, but still important to have a good idea of the images you're going to aim for in your head before the day.
