A single photoshoot can produce hundreds, even thousands, of photographs in a single session. Dealing with all those files and sharing them with other stakeholders can be a pain for a photographer, who instead should be worrying about the quality of the work.
With cloud computing, however, photographers no longer have to worry about the logistics of their job. Now, they can return to getting that perfect shot. Hosted services not only provide all the online storage space anyone could want or need, but they also serve as robust platforms through which photographers can share files.
The ability to send and receive information quickly and easily can provide myriad benefits for professionals within the industry. But let's consider how the cloud can make photographers more efficient.
Take the instance of a photographer working on site, for example. He or she will arrive early to set up and get everything ready before the models arrive on set. After a few hours of shooting, the time comes to break down and begin the process of cropping and editing photos. This is where a tool to share files online can really help a photographer.
Instead of lugging USB drives, CDs, and other storage equipment to and from the photoshoot, a photographer can instead rely on the cloud to make this step in the process much easier.
Shortly after photos are taken, they can be uploaded to an online storage solution for safe keeping. From there, the files can then be shared with other cloud accounts. One such account could be based at the photographer's office, which will ensure that all the photos are ready and waiting when he or she gets back from the shoot.
