Importantly I do have a workflow, because the flurry of pixels keep mounding like snowdrifts on my increasing number of mountainous
I import through Light Room to weekly folders or project/trip folders, adding key words, rating and flagging and importantly file names
to find that shot!! As well as the DNG file, I save the original raw file to a separate drive. I use LR to do global changes and try different

I have always used Nikon from my first F2AS to my present D3X, D3 and F6 with 3 zoom lenses all f2.8, 14-24mm, 24-70mm,
I also use a Leica M9 with 28mm f2.8 and 50 mm f1.4 for my street photography to present a lower profile.
I use a Gitzo 3540 XLS tripod with Really Right Stuff BH-55 with B2-Pro II Quick release Clamp and a Manfrotto 682B monopod with
RRS BH-40 with B2-Pro II clamp and an Induro CT-214 for travelling lighter. All cameras have the RRS or Kirks plates fitted for quick
On the road I back up to my laptop to 2 x 500GB back up drives; LR and Photoshop are with me in the field as well. I have calibrated
my lenses and Nikons with Lensalign Pro by tuning fine focus and cameras have been colour checked with x-rite and pre-sets
installed in LR
I am continuing to explore film with my Holga Belair X 6-12, Hasselblad 500cm and a Toyo View 8x10 camera with Polaroid 8x10 back
also 4 x 5 reducing back with also Polaroid back. This mounted on Leica surveyors tripod with a Manfrotto 400 Geared Head.
