This week we’ll talk about security. How safe and robust is your Capture One workflow? What will happen if your computer suddenly dies? Will you lose your images or Capture One settings? I’ve prepared a five-step guide on building a fail-safe Capture One workflow that I practice in my work! Step I. Diversify image settings First and foremost, you need to diversify image settings location. In sessions, Capture One stores image settings in separate files. Just don’t delete the CaptureOne folder near your RAWs, and you’ll be safe. Even if your data is somehow corrupted, you’ll lose the settings of…

This week we practice working with color schemes in Capture One! If you’ve missed the first part of this tutorial, check out my blog post to learn about applying analogous colors in Capture One. Today, we’ll see how to work with complementary colors! Complementary Color Schemes in Capture One I think photographers shouldn’t overcomplicate complementary color schemes.
