Delicate Arch

Bear with me, this is going to be pretty photo-geeky stuff. I really don’t think there is anything wrong with shooting .jpg anymore. For years I have configured my cameras to shoot both .jpg and RAW. This image is a .jpg straight out of my Fuji X-E1. Sure, I still had the RAW for backup, but the fact I didn’t have to spend anytime processing this image means I might have more time for making photographs. In my book, that’s good thing!

Running up to the first of the year, the schedule here might be touch-n-go. I’m working hard on bringing a very cool learning experience to people who want to grow both photographically and creatively. I wanted to apologize in advance in case you miss a post or two. Thanks for understanding!

  1. Interesting post Justin. I haven’t shot JPG in years and I would not have thought to shoot it again. I think I will try RAW + JPG and give it a try.

  2. Ahhh, sweet memories..nice Justin

  3. Was thinking about the jpg deal. On the plus side, it would really make workflow so much quicker. Sometimes when I go back and forth between various plug-ins and say, photoshop, my computer will hang up, etc. Jpgs would solve that problem. Disk space and memory card capacity would be hugely increased. And the Fuji system has a really good jpg converter for that funny sensor of theirs. On the other hand, if you’re editing a jpg, you have less ability to make big changes. Also, jpg is not a lossless process and you’ll lose quality along with the editing, as opposed to TIFFS which are basically lossless. Maybe jpg+RAW is a good way to experiment and see if it’s doable.
