So I thought it would be kind of neat to see how far I’ve come with post-processing images from SOOC (Straight Out Of the Camera) RAW files, to the finished image… each photo typically takes me 15-20 minutes to process within Lightroom and Photoshop (if I’m in the zone, that is.  Out of the zone?  Sorry, but we’re talking weeks/months… just ask my TF clients) and I’m always amazed by the changes possible.  Shooting both RAW and JPEG formats gives me the ability to manipulate an information-laden 5k petabyte original file alongside the (floppy-disk-sized) JPEG file that the camera had already quaintly processed using my in-camera settings.  Click and drag the slider to see the difference a little post-processing can make!  Another one after the jump…
