OK, so apologies to Brides or Grooms checking out my Blog for the latest weddings. This post’s for photographers! 🙂
Loupedeck Lightroom Editing Console
All photographers, including us wedding photographers, spend a HUGE amount of time at our computers.
No-one hands over images as they were shot.
We spend days culling and editing the images we shoot. White balance. Exposure. A myriad of other, subtle adjustments to each and every image.
We use a mouse or graphics pen, plus a keyboard, to make different adjustments. Hardly an ergonomic process! There must be a better way …..
That’s when I got interested in Loupedeck last year. It was being funded on Indiegogo, a crowdfunding project. I’m not normally one for committing money to something that’s not even been built, but I was intrigued. So intrigued, that I actually committed and invested in the project.
Well, today, my own Loupedeck was delivered.
Loupedeck initial review
I’m not into posting videos of unboxing things, although some seem to like that sort of thing. What I will say is that my initial impressions are extremely favourable.
Construction is solid. All of the major adjustments are made via dials. You have the ability to customise buttons for different functions.
A quick “play” in Lightroom brought a smile to my face.
Small, incremental adjustments are easy to make. Much easier that trying to adjust sliders in Lightroom.
Much more controllable and more subtle.
Tomorrow I start editing the most recent wedding, so it’ll be interesting to see how quickly I adapt to a new workflow. It’ll also be interesting to see whether this actually saves me time during the laborious process of editing – I hope so! 🙂
