Going With the Flow: Developing Personal Workflows to Be More Creative
In this session, we will discuss how to develop workflows that can help you reach your creative goals as a photographer through efficiency, practice, and flow. While it might not be the most exciting topic at this conference, workflow development can actually help you have a more fulfilling and creative experience in photography by lowering the price of entry to creative freedom. When you learn the optimal way to do something, you internalize that process and it becomes habitual and second nature. Similar to how an athlete trains for a competition or a musician practices scales to perform a song; internalizing workflows can help you create more meaningful art because you’re completely engaged in the act of creation instead of being overwhelmed with the logistics of “how to do it”. I’ll be presenting some specific examples of my own workflows for planning, packing gear, and shooting different types of scenes. We will also cover how workflows can help with consistency in post-processing with Lightroom and Photoshop and other not so obvious ways workflows can make us more creative photographers!
