Hi Andrew,

This page contains before-and-after comparisons of digital work, and a screen shot of photoshop open for various projects. I also included exhibition documentation work I've done for Gallery 44 and the University of Toronto.

My photo workflow is as follows:  

  • Digital Imaging: either through raw files from a digital camera, or scanning film negatives.
  • Colour Grading: Typically through Adobe Lightroom or in Hasselblad Flexcolor (for scanned negatives). Various exposures of images are usually made during this process for masking.
  • Photoshop: This is where 'deep' editing occurs, masks are made, parts of the image are cleaned up, shading is done, etc. Work is saved as .PSD
  • Export: Finalized images are exported as TIFFs, cropped, resized (according to desired specifications), and sharpened. At this point these files are ready for any sort of printing application.
     
  • All files are backed up throughout the workflow. I usually back up when significant advancements are made. For any one photo I have many backups of the project in various states.

Thanks for taking the time to view this!

Alvin
