Re: Digital Cameras, Photoshop, Fugi Frontier and Weddings



I switched to all digital wedding photography last summer. Cameras used are
the D1x and D1H. My workflow includes batch processing using Nikon Capture
and finishing in Photoshop. I burn the images on to a CD and have them
printed on a Fuji Frontier. Results are excellent. Time for preparing images
has increased but the nice thing is that now I have control over color,
contrast and cropping.
