30 Jan Enough is enough

Enough is enough, Jpeg’s here I come

Due not what, that’s it, I have finally made up my mind, after years of swapping from one way to the other, wedding photographer for so many years, I’m not editing RAW anymore!

I’m sure you have done the same, read hundreds of articles, about the pros and cons of not shooting in Raw format….’The quality of the Jpeg is inferior, the jpg doesn’t hold as much information, gives you more choice over editing, more dynamic range, more colours, highlights and tones can be altered much easier!’ etc etc.

How many times, have I edited a RAW file and opened the Fuji Jpeg and then sat squinting at the Imac screen, comparing each and every area of the image, zooming in and out, cropping and re-cropping? It must be hundreds of times, then decided, well, I think the RAW is better and then again perhaps the Jpeg looks a little sharper! 

Kevin Mullins makes a very good point when he said “A few years ago he was using the Canon 5D on auto and a photographer asked what settings was he using, when he realised he was shooting in auto, the other photographer said, you have £4,000s worth of camera and you’re shooting in auto, to which Kevin said, you’re using 4ks worth of camera and you’re shooting in Manual, don’t you think the camera can do a pretty good job on its own?…
