365 Day Photograph Challenge: Day 95

First time shooting RAW

On my journey of discovery into the world of photography, I have talked to many people, some with knowledge, some with knowledge through another person. It was during one such discussion that I learnt about RAW image files. I decided to give shooting in RAW format a try (instead of JPG) and see what the difference was.

The subject matter was the Clock Tower, arguably Morpeth’s best-loved landmark. The time of day was blue hour. I can see the difference in quality between JPG and RAW file formats. And I can see how this will be beneficial when photographing certain types of photographs. I will be sure to use it again in the future.

Here are the results of my experiment.

It is a shame about the wheelie bin on the left. It seems to be quite common for wheelie bins to be left in plain site of our landmarks. I may have to become the wheelie bin police if these antics continue. Either that or I’m going to have to become a Photoshop wizard!
