Workflow… but not as you know it

Farmers fear unkindly May,
Frost by night and hail by day
Flanders & Swann: A Song of the Weather

Andy Hewson and Adrian Cochrane, the organisers of the Nikon Owner South-Coast Group have organised the last indoor meeting for the group before the start of summer and the various planned walks. It will take place at the Duke of Wellington on Saturday 12th May 2012 and is on the subject of workflow – but a totally different aspect of it.

Usually ‘workflow’ is concerned with the editing flow once the photos have been placed onto your computer and loaded into your editing software of choice. However, during the evening, Andy and Adrian will be looking at the underlying components and workflow that are not normally thought about in any great depth.

This will include: transferring photos onto your computer; the computers, hardware, software, backups, naming conventions and anything else that is used to support the ‘workflow’.

There will be short presentations from four of the members of the group about their own set-ups. The intention is to open up discussion, generally share ‘hows & whys’, and give people ideas about ways to improve ‘flow’ or different ways of implementing that ‘flow’.

Please leave a message on theNikon Owner Message Board: if you would like to attend and, in addition, please note if you plan to eat at the venue. It is also important to email (rather than telephone) your full name, user name, daytime mobile and landline to Gillian Greenwood at:
