well I haven't been on here in a week and the reason.  I really need to learn how to use raw photos well import them at least

took a short drive to Idaho to shoot the eagles and decided I would try raw.  luckily I shot raw + jpeg because the first time I downloaded the shots NONE of them showed up   now they aren't great shots and not many because when we were there they weren't flying as much.  but I finally had a little more patience today and reloaded them.  success,, well part way got the jpegs in but now how to edit the raw photos. ugh.  no patience for that today so will try that at a later time.

here is my best shot.  I need a bigger lens to get these shots that is for sure my 105 doesn't cut it.

unedited shot because now I can't find my cropped shot. grrr. time to walk away from the computer.


  1. I, too am trying to make the conversion from shooting JPEG to RAW. I took a bunch of waterfall photos last weekend, and used Canon's Digital Photo Processing software to download, edit and convert. It seemed to work fine, but it did make things take longer. I don't like having to add another step in the workflow. The waterfall photos on my current blog post were all shot in RAW. Take a look and let me know what you think.

  2. hmmm, I'm totally lost about raw and jpeg, sounds like greek to me, but I love the picture! Hawks are amazing, and we are blessed to have a few in our area. Of course, I get nervouse leaving my little dog outside when I see the hawks flying overhead, haha.
