Viewbug Asks to Go “Behind the Lens” by John Clark

Viewbug, one of the internet’s popular photo sharing and contest sites, recently asked me to go “Behind the Lens” on my photo of the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas.

BTL is a Q&A-style post that goes beyond the image itself and discusses the vision, equipment and other aspects of the creative process to help other photographers learn about the location and/or spur some thoughts for the future.

Using ON1 Photo RAW for Travel by John Clark

Traveling for photography is a great adventure, but whether you go away on a “trip of a lifetime” to an exotic international destination or simply take a weekend road trip, the safety of your images and workflow away from home is of the utmost importance. If you’ve ever tried traveling and managing and merging multiple catalogs in Lightroom, you’ll more than appreciate the simplicity of using ON1 Raw.

In this video I will show you my workflow using ON1 RAW while traveling. This includes a three-step backup process to safeguard your images while out on the road, as well as my culling and rating system. Finally, I’ll explain what I do with all my images once safely back home again and able to log onto all the external hard drives.
