Nice shots. BTW, Nothing wrong with shooting JPEG format. If thats what you are comfortable with and your clients are happy.. all the power to ya. Most guys that shoot raw are concerned with memory use, file space Ect Ect .......Momery is cheap. Programs like Lightroom make it a bit better to use a raw file. There are some extra steps no doubt. Try it again with the newer programs. If your willing to make the investment of time and $$ for the programs, I think you will find that RAW will give your more control and better constancy with your photography.

Yes, I think you are right. I have begun to enjoy PP slightly more since I got PS elements 10; not the best, but not bad at all.
I used to think of RAWs as pretty well useles with digital photo professional, but I know they do have their place.

I'll try processing a few more RAWs than normal this weekend and see how it goes; after all, the best skill a photographer can have is always being willing to learn.
Thanks!


I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."

No Problem Darin. Thats what this thread is all about. Helping each other improve and learn new stuff. I think you will find that shooting raw is actually easier and more adventatious with the newer programs...Lightroom is the bomb for Raw shooters. Makesit almost pointless to ever go the JPEG route.....that being said,,if I am shooting sports,,I am probably shooting JPEG format....straight off the camera,,shot these in California last month. The kids are both just out of HS

For those shooting jpg, are you constantly updating your white balance when outside? It seems time consuming. :)

I shoot raw+jpg, then once the files are on the computer I resize the jpgs down to 1200px and use them to do my picture viewing and personal selections. Much faster than trying to navigate full size jpgs or much larger raw files. I wish my camera would let me choose small jpg like my 20d did, but oh well. another reason to upgrade later on, hehe.

Just beacuse one is using jpegs doesn't mean WB will change. I keep mine to some fixed value whether shooting in RAW or jpeg. Makes it so much easier. You can easily change all images in LR.

I mainly shoot RAW. Had to use jpegs for two weeks as I got 5dmk3 and need to upgrade LR and now even stupid windows as LR4.1 won't run on XP.

Yes; after you do it for a while, it's easy; you get use to where the buttons are, and can do it on the fly!
(In fact, changing the flash settings takes longer for me, I think.)
I shoot on shade probably 90% of the time when I'm outside; that's just personal preference.

Its my experience that white balance changes slightly every minute. I also only shoot in shade and still notice this. :) I have to go in raw file by raw file to tweak each one. :) this is why im thinking of outsourcing my white balance work, its probably half the time Im behind the computer trying to get it just right. :)

Since you still use the 7D in Auto, you technically still have a point and click. ;):lol:

I use strobes for 100% of my shoots. Rarely do I need to adjust WB unless I want to make something look different.

If ambient then WB will change but it will change whether you shoot RAW Or Jpeg. So that is what I am not understanding inw hat you were trying to say that with jpegs it will take longer to adjust WB.

Outsourcing your WB? Either you are way more exacting than I about WB, or you are doing something way different in your work flow.
