Sports Illustrated's digital workflow
Eamon Hickey has posted a fascinating article on Rob Galbraith's website about the digital workflow employed by Sports Illustrated's team of photo editors and photographers shooting Superbowl XXXVIII. While amazing it also shows how far the workflow side of the process has yet to come, there's still a lot of disjointed work going on, even at the biggest names in the industry. Some fascinating quotes from this story, "Steve Fine is looking at two pictures every second. He's been keeping up that pace, with frequent short interruptions, for over four hours, and he'll keep it up for three more.", "In 2003, Sports Illustrated's photo department processed 1,028,000 digital photographs shot by staffers or freelancers under assignment. In 2004, an Olympic year, they estimate they will process closer to 3 million."
