Guess what? I’m finally shooting RAW! I didn’t think the ol’ laptop was going to be able to handle the RAW files, but I lucked out! It didn’t shut down once! It’s amazing how much you can alter a RAW photo file. So much more than a JPG/JPEG that’s for sure! You know what I love though? A photo that barely needs any processing! As much as I love to have fun with edits, it’s quite refreshing to get a shot that needs little to no tweaking! Especially when you’ve taken hundreds of photos!
Right now, I’d like to give myself a little pat on the back! I actually managed to get a couple good shots in the house and without using my flash! It’s quite challenging for me especially seeing as the house can be very dark and I don’t like to set my ISO over 800. With the pictures I’ve attached in this post, I lowered my shutter speed to 40 and 25! Yes, this is incredibly low and if you don’t have a VERY steady hand your images can come out blurry. There is nothing worse than blur! Thank heavens Alivia was still watching TV or I may have never gotten such great shots! I brightened this first image a bit too much but it’s late, I’m tired, and I just couldn’t find the energy to fix it. Sorry in advance if you need sunglasses to view! Nah, I’m just kidding! I just like to rag on myself every now and then! I guess it’s not that bad; I’m just very critical of myself! I’m sure some of you can relate.
Anyhow, I’ll leave you with these and catch you all on Friday! I can’t believe another week is almost over! Oh, and in case you are not familiar with the difference between RAW and JPG, I thought I’d share this post that I found over at Digital Photography School!
Ah, this next shot is much better. Yay for proper exposure!
I’m linking up the shot below to the following photo challenges…
Love the hand on her face in this next shot! You’d think she was posing! Either that or thinking!
And again with the hand!
Laughing at the plane going by!
