Workflow is everything: it makes your job easier, quicker, and more reliable. Travis Harris is a Miami-based wedding photographer who has one of the better workflows I've seen, and he shares it here.
Sure, workflow isn't the coolest thing to talk about in photography, but if you want to spend less time at a screen and more time taking pictures, it's something to work on mastering. Workflow really encompasses two main ideas: efficiency and redundancy. After creating this workflow six years and one million images ago, Harris swears by it, and I have to admit that I'm rather impressed as well.
Beginning with the point of capture, the idea of redundancy is crucial. He shoots with the Canon 1D X, taking advantage of the dual memory card slots (the 5D Mark III is a great option as well). He uses a smaller memory card in one slot and a larger in the second: this way, the second slot is always backing up the first, but he doesn't risk losing all images at once if something catastrophic happens in the first slot. It also means he only has to import from one card at the point of ingestion.
From there, he uses the G-Tech G-Speed Q in RAID 5 for work, though he recommends keeping the Lightroom catalog on a good solid state drive; note that this does not mean keeping the images themselves on the SSD, only the catalog file itself. A further array of G-Tech hard drives complement this, serving as his archive, where he stores projects to keep space free on the working drives and as various backups. An APC Smart-UPS 2200 insures him in the case of a power failure, and lastly, a Pelican case serves as transport when he does offsite backups.
Altogether, Harris' system is impressively thought out, thorough, and put together. His video is chock full of great little tips to use along the way as well, such as the benefits of managed vs referenced catalogs and how to name your folder systems. Give it a watch for more, and be sure to check out his site, Facebook, and Instagram.
