I recently had a project photographing my son's high school (Monterey Bay Academy) for a re-designed website and recruiting material. I ended up with 95 RAW files to edit. Needless to say, I had to simplify my workflow. Here's how I did it and met the project deadline with time to spare! Have a Lot of RAW's to Process? Try This Simplified Workflow.

For this image that I captured last week near Davenport, Ca (11 miles north of Santa Cruz), I actually applied the process. I then added a new layer (Cmd/Cntl J) layer and set the blend mode to multiply at 42% after working the process contained in the blog story. Give it a try, hopefully it will work for you!
