Another New Year’s Resolution: Shooting in RAW

by Christopher Paul on December 30, 2008

Note: I’m using Blogo, the blogging application from Brainjuice for this post… hopefully, it won’t mess anything up.

So I’ve come up with a new New Year’s Resolution: Always shoot in RAW format.

Everyone says you should shoot in RAW but its hard to see why. Only the very best photo editors can really process RAW the way its supposed to be done. And I can’t afford them. I also don’t posses the skill needed to really edit the photos. While I’m getting better all the time, I’m not sure if I’m there yet.

But I want to accelerate my learning a bit so I’m forcing myself to use RAW. So starting tomorrow, all my photos will be shot in RAW format only. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to produce better looking pictures because of it.

Now if only I could figure out how to store all those photos.
