Let me introduce you to Hu Ge, one of the top actors in China who has an amazing singing voice. His role in a series entitled, Nirvana in Fire, has been noted by fans to parallel the leading character’s rise from a tragedy. In 2006, a serious car accident that took the life of his friend and assistant, resulted in major surgeries which included over a hundred sutures on his face and neck. It would take him nearly a year to recover.
For this xdrive photo lesson Raj introduces the reader to raw photography as well as explores the advantages and disadvantages of setting the camera to raw.
Some of the disadvantages of using raw are:
- size of files and required storage space
- requires editing
- sluggish burst mode
- software required to process files and convert to jpg
- sharing images while traveling
On the positive side, raw images allow the photographer to:
- recover areas in the image that may be over or under exposed.
- easily adjust white balance.
- make use of high-end image editing software
- ensure that original raw images are not destroyed during the editing process.

My old body:
a drop of dew grown
heavy at the leaf tip.
How peaceful is
Every single dawn;
I gaze out, yet
Still in the depths of night
I dream…a grief, indeed.
Ah, for blossoms
to bring gusts of wind
to my summer garden.

Kezako…the challenge is “make a nice picture where the first thing that has to pass through our minds is: But what the hell is it?

“‘Half and half’ photographs are often called ‘split shots’ or ‘over/under’ or ‘above/below’ shots…National Geographic underwater photographer David Doubilet pointed out…they should be called ‘half and half’ images’ as they bring together the two worlds of air and water”*
well…how about two contrasting colors?

virtue beyond virtue
beauty beyond beauty…
just a poppy!
walking on, walking on,
things wondered about — springtime,
where has it gone to?
