Ok, so I know I’m way behind on this since I’ve had my camera for, um, almost a year now, but I finally made the switch to taking RAW photos, and it’s so much easier! I guess it makes a difference that I finally (kind of) learned to use the PSE that Tim got me at Christmas instead of relying on Picasa (although I’ve barely touched the tip of the iceberg and making lots of newbie mistakes, I’m sure).

I was afraid to make the switch to RAW because it seemed so intimidating, and gave it so much thought that I even had a dream about it!

I decided to shoot in RAW + JPEG the other day to feel “safe,” and I realized RAW was so much better after just a handful of shots and checking them out on my computer.

My first RAW shot after editing:

  2. Beautiful shot! I love the vibrant colours!

  3. It's beautiful! I think I'm gonna give it a try, too.:)

  4. I think it looks perfect…. what do you see are the differences between RAW and Jpeg?
