As I mentioned yesterday I shot in RAW for the first time this weekend. I had been wanting to try it after reading a post by Melissa on Click it Up a Notch regarding RAW vs. JPEG. Melissa and I went to high school together and after reading her blog and beginning to connect with other photography blogs she links up with, I decided to begin my blog journey. She is an amazing photographer who inspires me on a regular basis :o)! So thank you Melissa! Back to RAW, I had been hesitant because I take A LOT of pictures and I was worried about running out of room on my memory cards in the middle of a shoot. After stocking up on bigger memory cards and a portable hard drive at Costco I gave it a try. So far so good on the size issue, I am now wondering what I should know about what RAW can do in shooting and in editing. I would love to hear what you know about RAW.
As for today's photo, I decided to do a shot I took from the ferry on the way to Bainbridge Island looking back at the Seattle skyline. I thought it went nicely with the night photo I shared yesterday. I wanted to capture the entire skyline and the sunlight. I like how it turned out, but I think I should have went with a bigger aperture as I think it loses some definition. In post processing, I cropped the photo, played with the basic settings and the tone curve.
Thoughts and suggestions are always welcome!
