Capture One Pro is my editing software of choice. I switched from Adobe Lightroom in 2015 and never looked back. The reason I looked at Capture One was that Lightroom was running unbearably slow on my aging Mac Pro computer. To keep up with my work load, I needed a faster computer or faster software, and moving to Capture One was the least expensive option.
Now that I’ve been using it for several years, I absolutely love it! I find the images have better colour and definition right from the initial download, the controls are smooth with more options for ultimate adjustments of your RAW images.
Capture One also allows you to work in either Catalogs or Sessions. Catalogs are similar to Lightroom, but Sessions are totally unique to Capture One. I use Sessions for my professional work, one for each photo-shoot, which I use to download, edit, and deliver final images to my clients. Recurring clients, my personal work, and family photos are cataloged. Two methods to exactly match your workflow.
