I agree that people who get so wrapped up in the jpeg vs RAW discussion are missing the points David is posing to us. I know people in my camera club who only shoot jpeg, and they seem to do very well in competitions etc. I think one has to decide for themselves what format to shoot in, and go with it and not spend time criticizing other people's preferences. I guess some people need to make themselves feel good in any way they can. Keep up the great work, David, and ignore the peanut gallery, I mean negative people.

2013-02-15T09:47:40.621-05:00

HTP works on the raw because it doesn't change the tone mapping for the jpeg, but it is actually adjusting how to meter the scene, to preserve the highlights that would otherwise be clipped on-sensor , ie. even in the raw file.

Thank you. I feel the same way. It's sad to see people all with the same passion arguing over petty nonsense and word mining.



AMEN

OMG! There are two kinds of photographers, happy ones and cranky ones. The happy ones continue to enjoy a half full glass of wine whereas the cranky ones are always complaining that the glass is half empty.

I use HTP in RAW mode. Your article seems to suggest that HTP only works in JPEG. I like how HTP save me from blowing out the highlights. What am I doing wrong?

2012-01-21T09:44:23.888-05:00

Many years ago I attended one of Davids weekend
seminars,,,you guys stop arguing and listen to a complete pro,and also an extremely nice guy,,
his advice is solid and to the point,he is also a master at posing,a true pro would read and absorb what pertains to his own way of shooting,i also would like to apologise to david ,but you know what, I know he is confident enough in himself to take take it all with a grain of salt.

2011-12-09T03:49:23.193-05:00

I can not believe the comments that I have read over the years that they have been posted. As a pro wedding photographer and general photographer, i would like to know whether the comments made from some are from those that actually work in this field.

The attitude stinks, and actually makes me feel less proud to be a photographer when i see them bitching like old women. All i can say is ruler comes to mind!! You all need to get a grip!! And stop acting like children.

David was kind enough to add a blog regarding tips. Even stating that he wouldn't get into the debate regarding the difference of raw and jpeg, proving that he knows the difference.

There were a few things that made me wince, but you over look that and look at the work and the tip he is providing and take the best.

To be honest you sound like bullys, using this as a opourtunity to make your selves look good, but all you did was annoy others by making your selves look like idiots. Obvoiusly need to get out and use your camera more, in my opinon.

well i enjoyed the read.. and would like to apologise to david, for the lack of condieration and grattitude displayed by fellow photographers. All i can say is the attitude shows at what level of photography you are at guyts, and it does not put you in the pro world to behave this bad!

2011-09-22T12:28:52.539-04:00

Yeah, it should work. I think it works in both raw and jpeg anyway

2011-07-27T20:52:13.128-04:00

If I shot RAW + JPeg, would the HTP still work?
Obviously this would nearly double my capacity, but I think it would be interesting to compare the difference side by side. Has anyone done this exercise yet?

Kind Regards,

P for professional... when im shooting a weeding and i see "uncle bob" on "p" i laugh inside. are you kidding. if you are shooting on P you should not be shooting the wedding...

2011-06-07T13:57:41.269-04:00

So since JPG apparently can't be used anymore and none of the other features of my camera besides manual can be used anymore I guess I overpaid for my camera with all these extra functions on them damn you Canon!! Next your going to tell me the screw has completely replaced the nail and any carpenter using a simple hammer and nail is well simply no longer professional and should hang his head in shame. ANYONE who says there is ONLY ONE WAY TO GO should simply just GO! JPG is a very viable format to shoot in, you know it is since you output your precious RAW files to it anyway so if you CAN skip a step why not? Those who can't rely on RAW thats fine too... There is absolutely nothing wrong with shooting in A or P or Professional or Idiot mode whats important is knowing how you camera is going to behave... ultimately your camera or you is going to arrive at an fstop, a shutter speed, and an ISO value... if you know how your camera behaves doing that for you and you get good results great!! If you don't trust your camera then pick it yourself... let me know how it went after the moment is gone while you insist on making the adjustments yourself...IN ALL CASES of course.

Highlight priority is a fantastic addition to Canon's tool kit (albeit your letting your camera do some thinking for you though god forbid) If you dont care about blown out highlights then don't use it...if you are shooting something very specular or something with a fairly large exposure range and would like to preserve some of those highlights turn it on.. are there some limitations and side effects ... yes... only you can decide if its worth it... just like taking medicine is the benefit better than the side effect... There are some arrogant @$$es who have responded here very disrespectfully to a very seasoned, published and acknowledged pro... To you, I suggest you publish your own blog and stop following someone you disrespect so much.

Wish I got so many angry comments on my blog articles. Very good for SEO.

Handy article by the way.

It actually shows highlight tone priority in a way you can see it. these images are good, but its hard to where HTP is happening

2011-03-04T22:08:29.358-05:00

My partner and I shoot Harpers, Vogue, Cleo, etc, as well as for many large clothing companies. We also shoot JPG. Our images are used on billboards, shop windows, magazines, buses, trains, trams... Absolutely everywhere. Manual + JPG is all you need. If your images don't look amazing, it isn't the camera - it's you.

Even I knew the P mode for Professional was sarcastic. You guys should cool it.



What is going on with all of these nasty comments?...

2010-08-26T21:00:32.839-04:00

What is going on with all of these nasty comments? It was obvious that David was kidding about the "P" for Professional remark. I love photography but grumpy - rude photographers is another matter. David is a great photographer and does a commendable job of sharing his expertise with other photogs. I for one appreciate what David does very much.

JPEG shooter? Do they still exist?

JPEG in a wedding? Lol!

2010-06-30T17:57:35.746-04:00

I'm not a pro and not that good of an amateur for that matter so I'm asking/stating to learn...Regarding the debate between jpeg and RAW...why can't one set the camera to record both RAW and jpeg at the same time? Memory cards are cheap these days :).

2010-06-25T08:08:18.535-04:00

While my work is invariably in RAW, I have seen some of the world's top pros shooting JPG, in Program mode, almost exclusively. Point in example: It is easy to find out what format accounts for over 85% of all winning images in the World Press Photo awards for last year. Yep, JPG.

I have worked with a photographer who has won the WPP award twice, and has been a judge for WPP for years, and I can guarantee that if someone suggested always shooting manual mode to him, he'd have a laughing fit.

I frankly believe most of the rude comments regarding the author's views on shooting in Program Mode and in JPG, originate in a strong envy about his success. I feel sad for the posters.

This had to be said.

2010-05-25T17:16:17.904-04:00

People who complain about P "professional mode" obviously do not know anything about David.
His is more pro than most of us, and the fact that you did not get his joke says more about yourself than about him.
No wonder people think some photographers are arrogant idiots when people like you populate the earth and think you are better than anything other living thing in the universe.
Both feet on the ground and a nice attitude (while adhering to the facts) will help a lot.

2010-05-16T19:17:53.294-04:00

I initially dismissed HTP when I [over]bought my 5D2, but leafing through my just-received copy of David's book I came across this material and thought I'd research anew. I would •kill• to be able to get keepers as good as his goofs -- and I shoot raw (which still is not an acronym). I have to believe that those unconditionally dismissing David for shooting JPEG (well, really, JFIF, but few understand the distinction) haven't even glanced at his work.

David, more power to you for nailing exposure, especially with the 5D2's lame meter.

As for shooting only M ... I'd love to see these 'purists' do that in my living room while chasing a toddler.

2009-12-24T01:29:46.190-05:00

wow, such snarky, "grumpy" commenters for this article.

anyways, thanks david, for this article. i will play around with htp and see for myself if i like it. i think davids point of the article is to just let people know that the option is out there, and that it may be beneficial to some of his readers.

as for jpeg v raw, didnt david write that that was a whole OTHER discussion? i shoot raw mostly, but im not gonna get on a very successful, professional photographer if he prefers to shoot jpg. wtf, shoot however and with whatever works for you. isnt that the beauty of photography (and the reason why there are so many different pieces of equipment to use in this industry?).

anyways, thanks david for the article. and i enjoyed the cameradojo podcast interview of you (i believe it was the cameradojo podcast).

good luck in 2010.

Girl anonymous,

David was just joking about the "P".
That's a JOKE!

I hope I don't hurt your feelings.
