The iPad has been on my mind a lot lately.

I bought my first in 2011, and it’s remarkable to see how far the device and my impressions of it have evolved over the years. In particular, the advent of the iPad Pro has accelerated a process that was already well underway: me moving more and more of my computing to the iPad.

This year, iOS 11 (and the arrival of a few amazing professional apps) allowed me to move portions of my photography workflow to the iPad as well. Having spent a few months honing that workflow, I’ve come to the conclusion that the iPad is a fantastic companion to a desktop computer for photography (not replacement…yet), and an effective replacement for a laptop for managing images while travelling.

My (debut!) article on The Sweet Setup digs into the details.
