Gear Selection (6:48)
With the outing planned, Scott turns his attention to gear. Bringing the right gear for the job is the goal. Bring too much and the gear is a burden. Bring too little a risk missing a key photo. Scott explains why he’ll take certain lenses and gear and how those choices will help execute on the vision for the shoot.
Field Work (11:51)
In this video, it’s out into the field to capture the photos. The morning begins at the ocean for sunrise. Scott explains his composition choices and camera settings. As conditions change in the field, you’ll learn why adjustments need to be made and when filters come into play. After a visit to town for a coffee break, the field outing wraps up at the shore again to grab a few photos of harbor seals.
Culling And Shot Selection (19:38)
Back in the studio, the process of sorting and culling through the photos begins. Scott uses Browse to apply key metadata to the photos and begin the cull. He explains why some shots are kept and others are rejected. By the end of the culling session, the selects are tagged for easy retrieval using Browse’s metadata filters.
Edit Workflow – Surfline (7:13)
The start-to-finish editing workflow in ON1 Photo RAW of the ocean rolling on to the beach. You’ll see how Scott uses a preset to jumpstart the editing session and modifies it to taste. He also leverages Photo RAW’s masking tools to quickly target effects to select areas of the scene.

You’ll also understand why it is important to leverage the Versions feature of Photo RAW for soft proofing.
