Flying Home

Lynn and I flew up to Wisconsin for a wonderful visit with Mike, Sara, and Calvin last weekend.  Just before landing back in Orlando, the sky lit up.  Lynn had the window seat and was making many photos, and she made a few for me too.

Before I gave her my iPhone, I opened the Lightroom Mobile App and set the file format to RAW DNG.  When I got home I processed it in Lightroom and Photoshop.  I think it’s very nice for a grab shot through a thick window!

If you have a recent generation phone, you should look into using RAW format, especially for scenes like this.  It records much more information and gives you adjustment room in your post processing, especially when changing white balance and recovering highlights and shadows.  It’s well worth it!

We’re both a little under the weather after our trip, so that’s all I have for you this week.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. Now – go make some RAW photos!

  1. Beautiful images which provide a different perspective on a sunset!
    Good tip on setting phones to RAW. I’ve tried a few shots and have been surprised how well they turned out!

    Additional tip: Use your phone to take “preview” shots of a scene you’re considering. Much easier than hauling out tripods and lenses and you can review the scene at leisure and return when the light is right with all that gear.

    Hope you both feel better soon!

    1. Thanks, Wally. RAW format on phones does work surprisingly well.

      “Preview” shots on your phone are a good idea too – thanks for mentioning it!

      We gave in and went to the Dr. today. Nothing serious and hopefully we’ll be feeling lots better soon.

I'd love to hear from you, please leave a comment!
