Our first show! Introducing the pixeLobby team. 

What is your workflow, what softwares do you use and what do you use to manipulate. 

 

Micah - Shoots with a5100 and D7000. Pulls files directly into Lightroom from camera card, allows Lightroom to do organization (http://pixelobby.com/importing-and-organizing-images-in-lightroom-a-crash-course-2/). Edits in LR/PS, hand-blends HDR in Photoshop and Nik Efex Color Efex 4.

 

Cindy - Uploads to Lightroom, LR makes a copy to backup. Uses LR for basic tweaks, lens correction etc. Uses Photoshop for cropping/additional edits and masking. Uses Noiseware and Nik Efex. 

 

Ed - Shoots D7000, uses Photoshop almost exclusively along with ACR. Is considering LR for organization. 

 

Jesus - Graphic designer, uses stock photos mostly, doesn't use Lightroom often. Uses Bridge->Photoshop, after sketching with pencil to create design. Creates tutorials when he learns a new technique. 

 

Brian - Shoots Canon 5D Mark III, workflow with camera cards, numbers them 1-10 in that sequence so he always has files backed up. Copies files over to photos folder labeled with date and location information. Imports folder into LR - backed up to other removable drives automatically. Does global corrects in LR and edits more heavily in Photoshop.
