Photography Workflow

Simple Photography Workflow for Beginners

If you just started photography, you can be puzzled about how to choose the correct camera settings. In fact, it is a common situation for many novices. Then, an easy to apply Photography Workflow assists you in making the right decisions.

In this section, I discuss an easy to remember photography workflow that I coach in our Photography Bootcamp Program

Effortless Photography Workflow

Generally speaking, digital photography can be really overwhelming, mainly for a beginner. Nonetheless, by taking the following steps, you can make your photography more effortless and enjoyable. Without any further ado, let’s get started: 

Photography Workflow for Beginners

For the sake of discussion, let’s categorize the photography workflow to two different scenarios: 


Scenario 1

There is a Moving Subject in the Frame

Whenever taking pictures of moving subjects, i.e. in sport, wildlife, kids, Etc, you need to ask yourself one crucial question; and the question is whether you want to make the movement blurry or freeze the action. The answer to this question helps you make the decision. 

You need to use faster shutter speed if you wish to freeze the action and capture sharp images from a moving item. For instance, if you take pictures of a flying eagle, you should use fast shutter speed to produce sharp photos.

On the other note, you may want to make the moving elements blurry. For example, you are taking pictures of a waterfall. By selecting slower shutter speed, all the stationery items stay clear, whereas the moving water gets blurry. It would be best if you used a tripod to stabilize your camera.

Slow Shutter Speed

Manual Exposure
By slowing down the shutter speed the moving elements get blurry. In this example, the water is blurry.


To control the sharpness of moving subjects in your photographs, you need to manage the shutter speed. Therefore, you must select the Shuter Priority or shoot in fully manual. 

In our Bootcamp program, I cover the baselines of different shutter speeds in detail.
