the argument for consciousness, the instinct of the blind insect, who never thinks not to accept its fate, that's faith, there's happiness in death
it is a couple months shy of two years ago that i tentatively began the transition from shooting jpg to shooting raw. i was far from convinced that this strange, bloated file format was worth the trouble. now i don't even think twice about it, and become frustrated when i use my compact camera and have to deal with the jpgs it produces. thing is, i don't think that shooting raw has made me a better photographer. on the contrary, if anything it has made me a more lazy photographer. i never give much thought to the colours that display on my camera screen, knowing i can adjust the white balance afterwards. similarly i don't stress about getting the exposure perfect, as i know i have the flexibility to make some adjustments to this in post production. consequently the gap between the original photos i take and the final result has widened - which doesn't really bother me as long as i'm happy with the final result. for me, switching to raw was as significant as the first time i got a manual-controlled camera or even my digital slr.

as you have probably worked out by now this is a photo that has benefited greatly from the raw format - and was processed solely in lightroom. here's the original
