(Continued after the Jump)

TRANSCRIPT:Here are a few thoughts on tablet computers in your photography business workflow. I'm John Harrington. iPads and tablets are great because they allow the client to see the images you're shooting when you're shooting, whether you're transferring images wirelessly from your camera straight over to the tablet or whether you're shooting tethered from the camera in the tablet, especially when you don't have a full-blown digital workstation setup for the client to see. Sometimes when you're working on the fly or working in a tight environment, you don't actually have the ability to set up a complete digital workstation so a tablet is great. In addition, especially if you're shooting wirelessly as you're shooting, as you're working, it gives the client the opportunity to review the images you're shooting, make certain that you're delivering exactly what they need, what they want, and give you requests or say, ""Hey, I this is a great, but I need you to shoot this as well."" Having a tablet, having an iPad for client review is really a great tool to make certain that the clients happy with everything you're delivering.

great idea to share tips but i must say - these videos don't come across as "photography learning videos" at all, but rather some kind of news program with tacky visuals. also i think its strange that you introduce yourself after the first sentence in every video. no harm intended, take these words for what you will!
