First Contest — Exploring Workflow

Next project. Flooring. #mostly365

I’m in the mid­dle of a two part series on my dig­i­tal pho­tog­ra­phy and iPad Dark­room work­flow over at the Future Shop tech blog. While I think I have a pret­ty good dig­i­tal work­flow that encom­pass­es my iPad, I’m think­ing that there are prob­a­bly oth­er very excel­lent work­flow ideas out there.

So, to entice some feed­back and learn from you a bit, I thought I’d offer out a few prizes from our fine friends at Mac­Phun, a few down­load codes to Pho­to Pal and FX Pho­to Stu­dio HD.

How to enter:

  1. Leave a com­ment below,  on this post, describ­ing your dig­i­tal dark­room pho­to work­flow on your iPad. Or if you don’t have one yet, describe how you think you’d use a diti­tal dark­room on your iPad.
  2. Note which app you would like to win, should your entry be select­ed (iPhone, iPad, Doesn’t mat­ter)
  3. Win­ners will be select­ed based on entire­ly arbi­trary cri­te­ria I’ve not estab­lished yet 🙂 Make your sub­mis­sion  inter­est­ing and / or infor­ma­tive and you’ll have a bet­ter chance at col­lect­ing one of these sweet apps.

Impor­tant Stuff:

  1. Con­test ends Thurs­day Feb­ru­ary 17th at Mid­night MDT. Win­ners will be select­ed and con­tact­ed via email on Fri­day Feb­ru­ary 18th.
  2. One com­ment / entry per per­son. Dupli­cates will dis­qual­i­fy all entries by that per­son.
  3. Feel free to pro­mote, face­book and tweet about this con­test, it could help your chances 🙂

There, that wasn’t too hard was it? Thanks!

  1. I’m just a “hob­by­ist” but love tak­ing pho­tos — par­tic­u­lar­ly live event/candid pho­tos — whether it’s at a con­ven­tion, a cir­cus, a con­cert or just around town. Often times these are out of town, or have some “down­time” that could be spent edit­ing pho­tos if you had a lap­top. The prob­lem is that car­ry­ing a lap­top can be bulky, heavy and a bit overkill if you just want­ed to do some quick edits.

    Since get­ting the iPad, I bring it with me near­ly every­where — when­ev­er I have a few min­utes to spare, I can quick­ly down­load my RAW pho­tos using the cam­era kit, import them into a num­ber of apps and even upload them to Flickr all while “on the go.” A lot of the apps out there are VERY full-fea­tured, espe­cial­ly con­sid­er­ing the low price. FilterStorm(and Pro), Pho­toPad, Pho­to­shop Express.. and then of course the ‘fil­ters’ and effects apps like Plas­tic Bul­let, Pic­tureShow, Tiffen’s Pho­to FX Ultra, Tilt­shift­gen and Lens­flare HD. For $20, you can have a huge selec­tion of tools at your fin­gers that would oth­er­wise require an expen­sive desk­top appli­ca­tion. While they’re not quite a replace­ment for Pho­to­shop and Light­room, they’re VERY good for those times when you just don’t have access to those oth­er appli­ca­tions.

    At Com­ic-Con 2010, I was able to take pho­tos, edit them and have them online in min­utes while wait­ing in line.. a task that oth­er­wise would nor­mal­ly have me just wait­ing in line and have to deal with edit­ing at the end of the day.

    I’d love to try the FX Pho­to Stu­dio HD app — it’s one of the “FX” apps I haven’t had a chance to use.

    1. Hey Mike, thanks for drop­ping by and shar­ing how you use your iPad while on the go. I envy you the Com­ic-Con — those look like fun!

      Stay tuned, the con­test ends tomor­row and so far, you’re in line for a prize 🙂

      1. Sweet! 🙂

        I love the idea for the site (and have added it to my feed) — there are a num­ber of iphone “pho­to edit­ing” blogs out there, but most focus on iPhone-spe­cif­ic apps that use the built-in cam­era, not so much bring­ing in your own pho­tos (from a DSLR or oth­er cam­era) or just a quick overview of some of the apps, so I look for­ward to see­ing more about what’s out there

        1. Thanks Mike, yeah, hav­ing the image acqui­si­tion side cov­ered is one thing, but doing things with the image after you’ve got it is what I’m inter­est­ed in.

          Lots of cool things out there, so I hope I’ll have plen­ty to talk about

          Oh, check your email 🙂
