We’ve had Voggy weather the past few days. With air thick enough to cut, it filters the sun to the extent you can capture interesting shots.

RAW or JPG

A continuous source of discussion is to ask do you shoot RAW or JPG. Either is a valid option. One can be a better choice in a given situation than the other.   Here’s a situation for which I’m glad I shot RAW.  This is  a panorama I created from a series of photos I took five years ago.  At the time I wasn’t thinking of making a panorama. DUH!  The cloud formation attracted my attention. In addition the water was calm and reflective. Fortunately, I had my 17-35mm lens on and had worked the scene for several images at the widest angle. By doing so, I inadvertently provided myself with enough images for a panorama five years later. (Which is a good tip to keep in mind in the future!) In addition, I shot in RAW, so I could manipulate the images without worrying about loss of image quality. Remember, RAW contains all the original data recorded by the sensor while JPG throws out data at the time of creation because it compresses the data.  What you see here is a high quality JPG image from the Photoshop file created by blending the original RAW shots together to make the panorama.  Would this image be perceptively worse if the original images had been JPG’s? Viewing on a computer monitor perhaps not. However, if you wanted to print (Yes, he did use the P word) this and put it on a wall, the higher the quality the better the color gamut and the larger a print you can make.

Sky Writing

This is a shot I got a few years ago out my back door.  The sky wasn’t this red.  This is courtesy of a Lightroom Preset called COL Deviant. It was a nice orange glow but the preset brings out the shape of the clouds. The clouds looked like God attempted to send us a message but perhaps it was backward.  Maybe it was a Rorschach test!?

Cool Winter Morning

You wouldn’t know from looking at this photo, but the morning was chilly in Hawaii Nei.  Low 60’s BRRRRRRR!
