I may have blogged in the past about always shooting in RAW. Here is a rather poor example which I like anyway.
Back in the film days we developed our films in our favourite chemistry. Once developed that was it. Now with digital we have the option of shooting RAW and when new software is developed we can go back to our old files and ‘re-develop’ using the latest RAW developer.
The above shot was a snap of an easter event happening in Lincoln, It was poor light, shooting into the sun. The orginal RAW developer did not make much of it but this week, I was exporting images again for my off site backups and this caught my eye. I decided to re-process using the latest Adobe Lightroom V4. Its now much better then the original.
Still not a great image but one I like.
Always shoot RAW.
