2016 was the year I finally jumped head first into Capture One Pro as my primary workflow management and color correction software. It’s been fantastic and one of my focuses has been on educating photographs of the many benefits this software can provide. My clients have seen a noticeable improvement in image quality at a very high level. When travel is not a factor, my wedding turnaround over the last few years is about a week (you read that right) and has been held pretty close to that standard despite the learning curve and while having deeper adjustment control for each image. Disclaimer: I never quote that duration, but consistently that is my personal goal without cutting quality.
Capture One asked me to write a couple of posts for their blog on the experiences shifting from Aperture to Capture One Pro, as well as beta testing the latest features available in Capture One Pro 10. Coming from Apple, not only as a pro photographer, but formerly an Apple Trainer with Pro Certifications including Aperture, it took a lot for me to let go of what I knew to learn something truly better. These resources will hopefully help you and others learn more about photography workflows and color corrections:

Another resource that made transition simpler are the Capture One webinars hosted by the incredibly knowledgable David Grover. I have the opportunity to present a Maximizing Catalog Organization webinar along with David on Thursday, January 14, 2017 at 4:30 AM and 11 AM ET (European & American audiences alike). This is a topic I live in and am quite passionate about in Capture One Pro 10, always learning more and hoping to share some of what I’ve picked up over the years teaching photography workflow concepts to photographers, as well as managing my own.
You can sign up for the free webinar here. Hope to see you there!
