    Hi Dan.
    Great article. I’m in a similar situation. I’ll be travelling through eastern Europe during most of June and want to travel as light as possible. I’m looking for an app that’ll let me geotag my photos (from a GPX track on my iPhone for ex.) and then rate and keyword them. Any suggestions?
    Regards, Alexandre

  • Dan Bailey says:

    Alexandre, I haven’t looked into geotagging photos very much, so I’m afraid that I don’t have any recommendations. Sounds like a great trip!

    Nicely done. I used to use dropbox for photo sharing but switched to Binfer recently. Makes sending pictures to my clients much easier.

    Nice write up.. I have a detailed write up of my photo workflow from ipad back to my Mac. I only use my iPad for editing.. so my mac is mostly used as a backup server 🙂 I have included the link below to my blog post. I broke up my workflow into 5 parts… Thanks

  • […] So, how do you enter ultra lightweight territory and still manage the workflow and stay on top of the sharing? In my own ongoing quest to come up with the lightest weight travel photography solution for things like bike and backpack trips, I’ve found the iPad to be an ideal device.

    I’ve been interested in perhaps switching to this kind of workflow. Have you tried Photosmith 3, and by any chance worked with RAW on your ipad?

  • Dan Bailey says:

    I have looked closely at Photosmith 3 and I think it’s a great app, definitely worth checking out if you’re interested in a more lightweight, mobile workflow. I don’t do RAW on my iPad, though, and the only reason is because of space. My current 16GB iPad 2 is pretty full and I just don’t have the space for even one card full of RAW images.

    I have read you new book “Behind the Landscape.” I could not “put it down” meaning that I kept at it because each photo you presented/analyzed was interesting and informative. I am trying to develop an eye for composition (both the scene and the light).

    Thank you! The examples you present and the suggestions are very helpful. Purple Mountains, McKinley River and Wonder Lake are fascinating.

    You have done it again! Another triumph.

    Your generosity to share, the clarity of thought and concise explanation thereof is brilliant. Perhaps I should also mention the beautiful photos and the talent necessary to produce them.

    Thank you, Dan.
