Bikers Against Child Abuse

Bikers against child abuse - The Feed


Published on Aug 18, 2015

An unexpected group are on a mission to end child abuse for good.They're not police or social services - but a bunch of tough, tattooed bikers.




With pictures always coming fast and furious and time always an enemy, here's my workflow to editing and moving pictures as fast as possible so that you can get your pictures out and easy in the quickest amount of time and with the least possible amount of stress.

:bulletred: Take series of pix (in this time, already single out the shot you wanted)

:bulletred: Lock the picture and then make an audio note on it (on my camera I have a little microphone button where I can make an audio note like for example "Nice shot, person x, doing x" so that I can remember the moment when I flip back to it. You'll find that this saves A LOT of time when you look back at the picture and wonder who that was and what he or she was doing.

:bulletred: Chimp when I can during breaks in shooting. Chimping is what we call filtering pictures on the go. You basically review and delete on the spot, the pictures you don't need or feel are repetitive. It helps that when you go back to the computer, you don't need to look at hundreds of pictures, but maybe just a hundred. Makes a big difference when you finally hit the computer screen. It also helps motivate you knowing that you don't have to stare at hundreds of pictures while trying to get three.

:bulletred: Transfer all the locked pictures from one card to another (Again this is for my camera which has two CF slots and I can do that.) That way I have all my best shots from earlier already, and I can immediately work on them. I load the rest into the computer while I work on the few pictures from the selects card and pull alternate frames if needed. 

:bulletred: Open pictures in Photo Mechanic, a very powerful tool as it allows me to view the images as efficiently as possible and also allows me to hear back the audio notes with a click of a button. I can also open it up in photoshop through the program and mark pictures and colour code them if I want to go back to them. Photo Mechanic also has the FTP function, so I can put my captions in there and send them to the desk when i'm ready to file.

:bulletred: Photoshop is a subsidiary of the above point, open the picture, check for colour corrections, crop if needed and then pull the contrast lightly in to offset the flatness of the image.

:bulletred: Caption up the picture with the adequate information and hit send.

That's it! Get great Wi-Fi and plot your routes out to file as soon as you can and you'll be on your way to being the first to file your pictures to the wire ahead of your competition.

Have a question? Ask me! Thank you!

"I believe that the chief value of photography as a means of communication depends entirely on the ability of the camera to arrest life instantly. It thrills me to speculate how the invention of photography has contributed to the speeding up of human reflexes. The rapidly working camera has sharpened man’s capacity to observe and observe rapidly; it has taught many of us to use our minds to classify visual phenomena in an instant of time; to relate our own attitude to that of the person in front of the camera in a split second. This to my mind is the essence of photojournalism" - Jozef Gross
