Digital Workflow Secrets: How To Rapidly Create High Quality Images

This presentation, given in July 2014, describes my workflow which includes using Media Pro and Capture One to downselect images, Capture One for RAW conversion, and Photoshop for processing, including Silver Efex Pro to create a B&W layer in luminosity mode for color images. Realistic HDR images are created using 32-bit files created by Photoshop and "processed" in Lightroom using Exposure, Highlight, and Shadows to create a 16-bit file that is returned to Photoshop. The presentation also covers my file management scheme.
