there's happiness in death

there's happiness in death
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
