iPad photo workflow

For the traveling photographer—or anyone who shoots in the field—the release of the iPad offered the possibility of a much lighter, easier field kit. Unfortunately, for the first few years of the iPad’s existence, the software did not exist to facilitate a pro-level workflow. Over the last few months, though, a few new apps have hit the store, and they’ve brought some important new post-production capabilities. Depending on your post needs, you might now be able to get away with taking only your camera and an iPad into the field.

The lovely and talented Ben Long offers workflow advice for pro photographers thinking about replacing a Mac laptop with an iPad, for traveling work. Some great suggestions for ways of getting your photos to the iPad and what to do with them once they’re there.
