I started off the semester shooting only in JPG which I soon found out was a disadvantage when editing in Photoshop. I started to shoot in RAW format making all of my pictures much easier to edit. All of my pictures were shot in RAW unless specified. Also, when I was first shooting my camera was set on a setting that made the camera think that I was shooting in shade making all of my shots look washed out with a burnt weird color. After finding this out and fixing it my picture taking has gotten better and my editing time had been cut in half, on average.
Camera: Nikon D60
Lenses: 1) 18-55 mm
