For years I've been complaining about the quality of my photos and people have been telling me I should shoot in RAW instead of JPEG, so finally I decided to do it. That involved me having to download software that came with my camera. So, henceforth, my photos will be in RAW, unless I determine it makes no difference. After I shoot in RAW, I convert them to JPEG so I don't see why I shouldn't just shoot in JPEG to begin with, but apparently it makes a difference. Here's my first shots with RAW. I stopped by the Burrowing Owl place on my way to CMO late this afternoon.
I don't think one shoot will tell me much, but in time, I should be able to determine if I'm making progress.
It was wonderful to have rain today. CMO got a little over half an inch. None ran into the tanks, but I don't have to water for a few days. I was getting really tired of everything seeming hopelessly dry no matter how much I watered.
Mac got a picture of some baby Scaled Quail today. I love precocial chicks that are not helpless when they hatch. Mac said there were about eleven chicks in this brood, but I only see eight in this photo. So cute. Maybe I'll get photo opportunities of them tomorrow since I won't have to water.
My gratitude to Mac for allowing me to share his photos.
