  1. Questions: Why did you have to go with that fast a shutter speed when you’re wide open at 2.8 and your ISO is way up to 3200? Was it in a very dark place? I like it very much, but curious.

    ALso, in Lightroom…this new version lets me decide if I am going to save ‘small’ or ‘large’ and I don’t know so I’m saving both but that seems kind of silly, so….what size do you usually save?

    And….now that I have a new Lightroom and a new laptop I can probably shoot RAW, (something in my process wouldn’t let me download RAW shots on my old laptop.) Do you advocate I do that? I’m starting to be pretty happy with what I’m getting, and I’m not shooting RAW, will I be so much happier? Maybe I should just go out and take some shots with RAW and see…

    OH..and another Lightroom question. When I’m importing , LR provides a little import box and it’s hard to see the photos that I’m choosing, can only see one row at a time. The old LR let me see a much larger space of my files, almost the whole screen size and it was infinitely easier to find the photo (s) I wanted to import. Have you had this problem?

    • Hi Dawn… OK. I’ll confess. The camera was still set at ISO 3200 from my comet capturing night. In my hurry to get out of the office before the rain I failed to change my settings until after the deed was done. Since the ISO was so high and the aperture so large the shutter speed had to be very fast to get the correct exposure. It was a darker than normal afternoon but if I had my ISO at 200 where it belonged my shutter speed would have been around 1/125s.

      So let me answer the RAW question first. Yes, you will see a difference in how you can process you images if you use the RAW file in Lightroom. Most cameras are doing some processing on the JPEG images they save. This could include white balance, contrast, sharpening and noise reduction. By using the RAW format you can process each to your liking without having to start where the camera left off. You will also have a better chance of recovering highlights and shadows with a RAW file and adjusting the white balance has more control.

      On to the import question, if my guess is correct, you should see a little down arrow button in the lower left of the import box. This is for more options and should expand the import box to the same size as the Lightroom window.

      Your last question has me baffled. When are you given the choice for large or small? At import, when you export the processed image? As for me I have setup a couple different export defaults; one for images going to the web, and another for when I am going to send the file to be printed by a service like mpix.com.

      • Ahhh, I have left my settings on my camera too, and then tried to use it in a different light situation. You made it work!

        I went out to Katie’s park (don’t tell Katie) this afternoon and shot some queen anne’s lace in Raw, so I’ll see what I can do it it.

        Thanks for the import answer, I’ll look for the arrow.

        The last question, I’m asked if I want to export small or large…when I’m done in lightroom and moving the resultant image to a file on my laptop.

        Thanks for all the support, I really appreciate it!
