Everything Photography | Pictures, Reviews, Education, and More
A little over a week ago I tried a little social experiment on my personal facebook account. The idea was quite simple. Put up unedited raw files for people to download, edit, look at and more. The initial idea was to let people explore how they edit with Canon raw files from some of Canon’s more professional line. Those photos would also be professionally lit and pretty much showcase some of my work. Personally for me, the raw files showed how I shot straight from the camera. The hope was that people would comment, critique, and more the files shared with them.
Here’s some quick reasons why I’m putting the raw files up for the public
**Update** We did a Google hangout talking about this specific set of photos, Watch it here!
The files themselves are from portrait shoots with various people. Most of those people are every day people, and only a few are actually “models” the cool part is a lot of them are just plan beautiful so it really made the photography easier.
As mentioned in the title this is part III, there’s been 2 raw broadcast before on facebook. So why the blog now? Honestly just the hope that it gets shared out to other photographers out there. I see this as a great educational exercise experience for people, and it’s awesome to observe how people approach a common file with their editing style. It’s EXTREMELY important to note that I DO NOT want to abuse people’s editing of these files so I can take the edits and use them, these raw files are from shoots that have already been edited and sent to the client.
So please enjoy these raw files, and please leave a comment below if you download the files. Just want to track if people are actually using this chance.
Please read the following disclaimer, and underneath it will be the link to the raw files (via dropbox), and also thumbnails of the files used for this selection.
Here’s the dropbox link to the raw files (session III) : https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wiev922zovgp6ek/QlO4Sm9e3P

Interesting note : the photo of Vivian is shot with a Canon 20D, it’s pretty bad quality wise compared to the others, but not too bad.
