Years ago, when wedding photographers used film, all they had to do after the wedding was send the rolls of film to a lab to get processed. With digital photography, however, the process is a little more complicated. The days of looking at your photographs as negatives, contact sheets or as slides on a light table are long gone. Now photographers view and edit their images on their computers, then post them online for their clients to see and order prints and other products. While there are many benefits to the digital age, it does require today's wedding photographer to have knowledge about more than just their cameras and other photography equipment. Today's photographers must also have good working knowledge of computers, software and digital workflow options.

DIGITAL WORKFLOW
