Yeah, I read up on the benefits, and whilst Im positive im not getting the very most out of shooting in RAW at the minute, I know that given time I will.

I shoot mostly Raw, but while I was at the X-Games, I ended up shooting JPG because I wasn't going to process the images too much.

It just depends how much you need to tweak your shots. If you really need to pull shadows, and per form other DR tweaks, you will want to use Raw.

Did you see the couple I posted? I really enjoy taking pictures, I use to take them all the time when I got my first decent camera. Mostly at different sporting events. I never learned how to use all the settings but always wanted to. I can't do anything even remotely close to what you guys can do but I still enjoy it and I have a couple at home I am semi proud of...well atleast I was at the time I took them lol

Thanks,

I think I used two speedlights on that one

Here is a crop of the original Raw file:


Just some contrast and minor color adjustments and cloning.

No, I didn't see a couple posted... At least not that I can remember.

Also, don't worry about the camera too much. If your camera has manual adjustments, you can do a lot.

I know it's not great, but when you are in a bind, you have to do what you have to do. I created the photo below with a point and shoot and three lights set as slaves which were triggered from the point and shoot flash. I covered the point and shoot flash a little bit with my hand so that its flash did not contribute to the shot.

I took these a couple years ago. Back when Sam Bradford was a Jr. at OU I think.





This is the post I was referring to.

LOL my bad, I should have been more clear. Those pictures are probably close to 4 years or so old now. Those are just the couple I was able to save on my ESPN profile, I have hundreds more on my home PC. I actually have some from UFC 103 I went to in Dallas I can get to that I have posted on another site. There was a time when I went to a bunch of sporting events. Texas Motor Speedway, OU Football, Dallas Cowboys Football, Thunder Basketball and Hornets Basketball along with UFC 103.
