Raw? I'm sure you're asking, what in the world is RAW? Well, it's actually Camera Raw. You know when you set your camera to Fine, Normal, or Basic... Raw is actually a step up from Fine. It actually does as it's called... It captures the image in it's raw state so in the long-run you can tweak just about every aspect there is... Choose the wrong WB (white balance)? Underexposed? Overexposed? No problem, just select one of the other settings and tweak to your liking when editing!
Actually Raw scares me... or it has in the past. Today I ventured into the raw setting. Of course I was just practicing on my kiddos out front, but I can definitely see how it would be useful. I was also shooting wide open (smallest aperature possible) while still trying to get tack sharp images. Not just crisp, but so crisp you can see every detail in their face.
I definitely got it in this one... Ignore the setting! Old carseat sitting on floor of garage. Heck, it held her still (no she wasn't buckled in), it was just a fun spot to sit! Oh and don't even get me started on her hair... Poor thing inherited mommy's fine locks. This one is actually maybe a tad hard to tell since I didn't crop in any closer, but if you could zoom into her eyes you could see how detailed they are. You can practically count every lash!
Not as sharp as the first, but pretty darn close. I can count lashes and see the tiny fine hair falling in her face.
This one isn't as sharp as the other two, but still great. I just thought she looked cute leaning over the seat. I've found a new sweet spot outside and I get great catchlights without any reflectors... Well, no man-made ones, just the natural ones!
I'm sure this post isn't very interesting to most of you, so just ignore for now. Or just ignore the text and check out my cuties! ;-)
I've been on a practicing streak, trying to fine-tune my skills and gearing up for this holiday season. With that in mind... Have you booked your session yet? Don't wait any longer because I'm booking up and I'd hate for you to miss your opportunity. I've got some great designs this year that I'd love to put to use for your holiday cards. Email me today!
