A lot of photography is about making yourself more efficient to streamline your workflow, as every second you can save really adds up over time. This great video features seven helpful tips that can make your workflow more efficient and leave you more prepared to shoot whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Coming to you from James Popsys, this helpful video will give you seven tips to help you save time and to be more prepared in your photo work. Of the tips, I think leaving your camera in a default state so you're ready to shoot is particularly helpful depending on what you photograph, as you never know when you might happen upon a great image. While Popsys recommends leaving your camera at your preferred manual settings, I personally prefer to leave mine in a semi-automatic mode, normally with a somewhat fast shutter, wide aperture, and auto ISO with a bit of exposure compensation to protect the highlights. This way, if some sort of quick action happens in front of me, I'm ready for it. If it's something else, like a nice landscape, for example, I can afford to take a few seconds to dial in the correct exposure. How you leave your camera might depend on what you shoot, however. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
