Why I love Capture One
"Capture One creates a seamless transition from the camera to the computer and allows me to extract the very best from my image in a variety of scenarios. When shooting tethered, it provides a robust toolset that allows me to get my image very close to the final look a client desires, quickly and easily. When preparing a photo for retouching in Photoshop, it gives med the tools to create the best base image possible from which to continue the retouch. Lastly, when preparing a photo for export, it provides a rich set of finishing features and proofing tools for output to any media or size I need."
