Crazy random photo mission

Last night I was out doing taking photos as usual when a group asked me to tag along and take photos of them all night. So I did.

I ended up mostly taking photos of a young women and her boyfriend. She had a blast. For the night she was famous I was her photographer. She even had to explain to some people that she was not famous. Although I think the truth was a little difficult for some to comprehend as well. It is rather odd that a stranger would take photos of you all night just because you asked.

I had a lot of fun as well. I took lots of photos. It was very cool to be part of something so spontaneous, fun and unique.

Shootin’ Raw

I tried shooting in RAW format again last night. I think the results after processing are much better than shooting in JPEGformat.

Another bonus for using RAW is I can only take about 90 photos, compared to about 400. This means I can’t get completely overwhelmed by taking too many photos. 🙂
