Worst feeling as a photographer

is when you get home after a long day out shooting and down load your photos.

Only to find all your photos you took are JPGs!!!

WTH

Oooooh… what a nightmare!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Dang, so what can you do?  The images can't be edited to the extent of a RAW image?

For sure not, Mike.

At best, Jpg files have only 1/6 of the whole record of a RAW file.

G'day Mason

The solution - ezy pezy matey ...

You do what the 98% of the serious JPG shooters do - you accept what's there, use a bit of nouse to examine your images, maybe play with Levels, Saturation, WB and maybe one or two more depending on your style, and you get on with it

And

Tomorrow, you remember to double-check your setup :)

Well things could have been worst.  Like no card in there, corrupt card or who knows.  JPGs are like a spare tire, they don't look pretty, but they'll get you there.

Been there and done that!  

Always make sure RAW is selected.

My definition of worst feeling is a tad different after last year driving out to location of a job and realizing I accidentally didn't have my battery bag with me and that I would have to shoot with a 30% charged battery!  The whole time I'm praying the battery would last and some how  it did!

JPG isn't the end of the world.  You can't edit it as mush as a RAW file, but at least you have it.  I bet if you opened it up in Luminar you'll get close.

Agree :kmonst:

Worst day I had was when I forgot to load the camera with film.  Of course this was long before digital magic.

My father was a big time film photographer, he shared many stories of accidentally leaving film behind, or someone once opened his camera and ruined his photos.
