I have been shooting my pictures in RAW lately. I love the control it gives me in cleaning up the not-so-great lighting pictures. Here are a couple pictures I took of the girls on Beggars night. The RAW photos were pretty dark. I used "100 Free Presets for Adobe Camera Raw" from photoshop guru, Jack Davis. Click here to get them for yourself.
Here's an example of the image straight out of the camera (SOOC) and then adjusted in RAW. The photo in the upper left hand corner is SOOC, the two square ones have had some presets applied to them,and the larger one in the bottom right-hand corner has a vintage look applied to it.
