After a bit of a lapse, I finally got off my backside and headed out into the woods with my camera. It felt good wandering through the trees, climbing around with eyes open and being tuned-in to my surroundings. However, when I got home and loaded my images into my computer, I realized that I had made a serious error. I had not checked my settings and did not notice that I was still shooting in jpeg mode, which I had set for an event I photographed. I know that will be be able to salvage some good images from today’s shoot, but I frustrated by the fact that I have lost a fair amount of creative control by not having shot in RAW. After all the years I’ve been doing this, I am not immune to mistakes. But, I am much better about learning from my mistakes.
