Here are a few more photos I shot between Lisbon and Coimbra. They were taken with an Olympus TG-4 in jpeg mode. The TG-4 is a small waterproof, shockproof digital point and shoot with a few bells and whistles such as the ability to shoot raw. Despite completing an enjoyable course in Light Room I choose not to shoot raw. I don’t want to spend that much time post-processing (these were tweaked a bit in Mac Photos). Nor do I want my pictures to be so perfect that they look like a dream or a Pixar movie instead real people in real places. Of course I could argue that the jpeg captures the soul of my art better than any other medium, but that’s a pile of horse dung. The truth is I like minimalism, I’m a little lazy and shooting raw and messing with Lightroom, Photoshop, whatever, takes some of the fun out of photography for me. Oddly enough I don’t mind developing B&W film. Shooting raw is not off the table, I just don’t feel like doing it now. Maybe I’ll change my mind in 2017.
