Big or small, Step and Repeat Events can often be “once in a lifetime” opportunities. As the photographer you want to get it right. From shoot to print, your workflow should be fast and efficient. Your tethered camera and computer workstation needs to look professional while at the same time it should be functional and rock solid.

Workflow – Software is the key

For a step and repeat event the photographer should be focused on the subjects and getting a great picture, not fussing with software or equipment. The industry standard for event photography software workflow for over 15 years, Darkroom Software will make your workflow seamless so you can concentrate on your photography. Once you take the picture with your tethered camera, Darkroom will immediately give you a preview on screen to make sure you got a great shot. Then with 1 button, Darkroom software will take it the rest of the way. This could be as simple as uploading the photo to Facebook, or a complex multi-step process. For example, you can set up Darkroom ahead of time to drop out a greenscreen background, add a custom border, send a print package that includes multiple prints and email the photo to the customer or post to social media. Or set up an auto print workflow and Darkroom software will process your photos and produce prints in the background as you shoot. The possibilities are endless.

While there are other programs that are great for editing and enhancing photos, Darkroom is all about workflow – shooting and processing hundreds or thousands of photos in a short amount of time Darkroom software will save you time, money and enable you to execute large profitable events. Easy to use, scalable to any size event, e-commerce friendly and compatibility with leading digital cameras and printers are other reasons to rely on Darkroom software.

  1. Hello,

    Which type of ALL in One computer will work with Tethering. I have the Screen mount but need help in finding a recommended ALL in One computer.

  2. Hi Gerry, any computer that can run Lightroom, Smart Shooter, or similar software will work as long as it has a USB insert.
