Raw Force

I have a confession.  I have heard all the arguments for and against switching to raw, but I wanted to stick with Jpeg out of fear.  You can call it fear of change, or fear of botching it up; the truth is, I didn’t know how to convert it to jpeg to work with my computer, and I was too lazy to look at the instructions.  There, I said it!

Now that I have that out of the way, let’s get down to the meat of this article.  A couple of days ago, I watch Jared Polin, on youtube, talk about the benefits of using raw, and yes it might be a little more work, but it’s a hundred times more versatile than using jpeg.  After seeing his proof, I revisited my software instructions and found the conversion button.  So now, I can adjust the raw files to the image I want, (not what the camera wants), and convert it after I’m done with it.

As of yesterday, I made the switch completely to raw, and here’s a couple of images I took with it.
