Newbie here. What Picture Style do you normally use? Do you customize Picture Style for :

1. Portrait
2. Group pictures
3. Night shots (with or without flash)
4. Landcape
5. Others

Do you use a different Picture Style when using RAW and JPEG?

TIA

90% of the time I shoot RAW on Av. I am sure the other styles would work fine when used correctly. Good Luck

It will be pointed out that Picture Styles are really only relevant if you are a JPG shooter. For RAW shooters, Picture Styles are largely ignored. I say largely, because your camera still uses them when it creates the JPG preview image.

I shoot raw, and thus use the Neutral picture style so that the JPG preview will be as close to the raw file as possible.

Thank you Galen, David for your replies

So if you shoot only JPEG (like I do for lack of processing skills), would you recommend I use a customized Picture Style?

start using raw man, youll get there in the end and its worth every penny. even so I think you can add the picture style in DPP later (same result as jpeg in camera) so even if you dont want to do a lot of it, just do it when you export the image.

You can always apply the picture styles in DPP or create your own and save them with the Picture Style Editor that came with the camera software.

Yes. Play with the adjustments and see what works for you. I shoot ALL my cameras both RAW and JPEG and I make sure I know what works best on ALL my cameras for the best picture quality in that particular mode. There are a lot of RAW purists out there that will slam you for shooting JPEG.

Shoot what works for you, but I highly urge you to learn ALL aspects of your camera. You'll be amazed what you can do with both RAW and JPEG files.

Once you learn post-processing, it's almost as fun as pushing the shutter button. As a sidenote: I process ALL my JPEGS files as well as RAW photos. ;)

Have fun experimenting!

I do not own a 5DmkII, but my 40D also has Picture style. I shoot only RAW, but I also have a custom PictStyle loaded. Since my work flow is not heavy, I'll open up the image in DPP and take a looksy at what the different Picture Styles will alter my picture. If I like the results I'll either convert and save in DPP or I'll attempt to duplicate it in Photoshop.

Just my .02 cents.

Good luck and enjoy the edits.
