My first shot in RAW...

That's right my friends, this is my first shot in RAW. Woot, woot! It's not all that great, I was just playing around to see if I could even figure it out. But I'm so flippin excited about it that I had to post it. All I've done is adjust the shadows and contrast. Obviously, I don't really know what I'm doing yet... If anyone has any helpful info or tutorials about processing in Raw please send them my way. I wasn't planning on taking the plunge just yet, but the assignment for the course I'm taking requires us to photograph an 'event', journalistic style, in Raw. And the event that I'd like to photograph is tomorrow! Didn't leave me much time for learning. I have a feeling that the little push into Raw will end up being a good thing for me...
