I just got my changing tent in today. That thing is awesome! It folds to about the size of my 43 inch reflector and weighs only a bit more. Folding it is also a snap, unlike what some reviewers said on Amazon. I did it first try, no problem. So did the wife. :D

JPG isn't so bad; do it right the first time and there's no need for RAW; auto, though, is plain atrocious!

I find that when im outside the color balance is constantly changing, so with jpg it would be that much harder to get the color right. :)

I wish I had a vehicle that was large enough to allow me to transport chairs and those weird looking couches *no idea their proper name* to locations. someone needs to design an inflatable chair and couch set that looks realistic when at proper inflation. :D

I finally did a chair portrait the last time I did a senior portrait but that was because I was at their house and they had some nice ones by the pool.

Settee. Usually Victorian. And, well. Bungee cords and ratchet straps make all things possible.

Guys- I broke down and bought the Shorty Forty. I needed something to replace my kit lens, I just needed to. I must say, so far, I absolutely LOVE it. Some of my newer shots on Flickr were taken with it.

I like this one (external link) in particular. Not very interesting technically or anything, but I like it. :p

Doesn't compress as much, and it's easier to PP, you can change White Balance and color a lot easier, and rescue blown highlights. I shoot in RAW some; I don't use them much; I like what comes SOOC more.


JPEG is probably a bad idea. There has been much written about both formats but white balance and the ability to recover blown highlights is one of the big reasons raw is a desired format over JPEG. What you see in your viewfinder is a JPEG file. Raw gives you total control and a better opportunity to control the entire dynamic range of the photos and allows the photographer to make decisions on sharpening and how the blacks and whites are applied,,,,,,,,,,JPEG does not do this. Countless top of the line industry experts advise to Shoot raw.Thats what i do and i get it right in camera as well

Oh I do shoot it some. It's just a safety net to me; I rarely use them. If I mess up a shot I really like, then I'll use them.


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

I shoot RAW + JPEG when i shoot RAW. Normally, I'll use the JPEG file, but if I messed it up, I can use the raw file and PP it.

Ok I see. That's a weird way to do it, but I understand what you meant now.

Then again, I am slightly weird! :lol:
I'll have to post a couple senior shots over!
I hope to have more this weekend; I'm doing my cousin's senior pictures.

Me too.


I turned off my .jpeg setting entirely and shoot entirely RAW. Saves memory and I have more play when I'm editing.

Even if you get a shot right in camera, maybe you find something (a new technique or tutorial) that you can use it for. With a .jpeg you don't have as much room to work with since it is a compressed file format and has already been "developed" by your camera.

A RAW file is undeveloped data and can be processed however you want to in your "darkroom".

I guess it depends on your style; most of mine are not processed... I like the SOOC look.
