A Beginners Guide to Editing with Capture One for Portraits

Looking to give Capture One a try but just find it confusing? It can be a bit difficult when you first open it up, especially if you are accustomed to another image-processing program. Change can be tricky at first, and here's a video to help you get started. 

When I first opened Capture One for a trial a few years back, I quickly went back to the program I was already familiar with using. I then gave it another try and have stuck with it since. To help you get started with editing portraits, check out this video from photographer Emily Teague. Teague covers her editing workflow and how she edits her portrait photos. 

To help you visualize what each slider can do, Teague does a great job of explaining and showing how they can affect the image before she finalizes her changes. The video may seem long, but once you are familiar with the tools and even customize your layout, the process should be reduced to minutes. Granted, it all depends on your style and how you edit. 

If you are currently using Capture One, what are some other tips that you have for first-time users? What helped you get comfortable using Capture One? Let us know in the comments below!
