In The Raw

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 4, 2010


Today marks the first day that I am shooting in RAW with our Canon 30D!

So far it isn’t as scary as I thought. I have a lot to learn though. Anyone else shoot in RAW? :) I have Adobe Lightroom, but I just need to figure out how to use it…


This morning I woke up craving a Green Monster! I can’t go more than a day or two without coming back to the green.


In this GM: 1 cup hemp milk, 1 scoop Amazing Grass Wheatgrass powder, 1 frozen ripe banana, 1 tbsp chia seed, 1 tsp maca powder, 1 tbsp cashew butter, ice, oh and 3 cups spinach. ;)

I feel like I haven’t had a GM in ages but its only been a few days – they are addicting! I am getting chia seeds TODAY in the mail for the first time ever and can’t wait to experiment with them!


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 4, 2010 at 9:00 am

oh you will have a ball!


Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman May 4, 2010 at 8:56 am

Love your photo with the water falling. You’re a great photographer!


Jessica @ The Process of Healing May 4, 2010 at 8:58 am

I had a GM yesterday for the first time in a while and it was SO AMAZING.


Heather @ Side of Sneakers May 4, 2010 at 8:58 am

Beautiful photos!! What makes shooting in RAW different?


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 4, 2010 at 9:01 am

Check out the link I included in the post, it gives a quick overview.


Heather @ Side of Sneakers May 4, 2010 at 9:15 am

Oops sorry, I totally missed the link!!! :)


Shawna @ Balancing Me May 4, 2010 at 9:04 am

ME! I love shooting in RAW format. I’ve been doing it for years, and I haven’t ever thought of going back to JPGs. Lightroom is awesome, too! Do you know how to use the little eyedropper tool to fix your white balance quickly?


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 4, 2010 at 9:09 am

haha unfortunately…no!
I did white balance with a drop down menu onthe side tho (I think!) How do you use the eye dropper?


Shawna @ Balancing Me May 4, 2010 at 9:19 am

Once in the Develop section, on the top right of the right panel, there’s a little eye dropper. Click it and then go and click the part of your photo that is naturally white. Try it with a person and click the white of one of their eyes. It’s just a quick way to see if you’re even in the correct white balance ballpark until you’re able to tell which corrections you need to make by eye.


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 4, 2010 at 9:34 am

Thanks got it!


Lizzie May 4, 2010 at 9:08 am

I shoot RAW and L files – the problem I have RAW is the size. My poor little ‘puter (which is also my work computer) is really chugging hard right now, even with my external drives. Time to get a new one . . .? :) I am thinking about getting Aperture (have a refund to spend at Mapple), but I really need to do some research on it first to make sure I understand it all :) That definition link you gave at the top of this post is perfect. Thanks!


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 4, 2010 at 9:09 am

What is Apperture? A software?


Lizzie May 5, 2010 at 5:52 am

Yes – it’s a Mac photo editing software program with a little more ‘oomph’ than iPhoto.


Meg May 4, 2010 at 9:13 am

Looks like a good Green Monster!
Enjoy the weather today – it looks like a nice day out!

Just wanted to let you know I made the vegan overnight oats last night, had them this morning and fell in love!!!


Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday May 4, 2010 at 9:22 am

I always shoot RAW


Jessica @ How Sweet May 4, 2010 at 9:22 am

Those photos are beautiful, as usual!


Nichole May 4, 2010 at 9:23 am

Bah! Wish I lived closer, I’d totally apply:)


Lizz (Leading the Good Life) May 4, 2010 at 10:36 am

Me too!! Sounds fun! :)


Sebrina May 4, 2010 at 9:25 am

I always shoot raw! You will love it! You have so much more control over your exposure and white balance.


Morgan @ Life After Bagels May 4, 2010 at 9:26 am

I can’t take how awesome your pictures look lately. They are just so pretty and appetizing. I feel like jumping out of my seat to make a green monster right now.


Lauren @ Health on the Run May 4, 2010 at 9:33 am

Your pictures look awesome!! I love the one of the spinach being washed.

Good luck finding your new employee!! Makes me wish I lived near you!! :)


Jocelyn @ Peace.Love.Nutrition May 4, 2010 at 9:35 am

Your photos look great! Love the water drops. I want to buy a good camera (it’s added to my list of things!) haha

How exciting your expanding and hiring. So exciting! Good for you : )


Angela (Oh She Glows) May 4, 2010 at 9:35 am

Thanks ladies! :)


Heather (Heather's Dish) May 4, 2010 at 9:37 am

i really need a GM soon…i’m having withdrawals. so, you’re shooting in RAW is awesome! also, let me know if you need help with basic lightroom stuff…it’s so amazing once you figure it out!

can’t wait for Venice!


Ameena May 4, 2010 at 9:39 am

I know very little about photography (which is apparent by the pics on my blog) but I am also wondering what RAW means?


Claire May 4, 2010 at 9:43 am

I am going to have to read that link about shooting in the RAW next because I have no clue but am not so sure my camera can even do that…proves how much I know about photography! I wish I could work at the farmer’s market with you but too far!


Camille May 4, 2010 at 9:51 am

Aww, I wish I lived in the area so I could apply!
Southern California would be a long commute though :)


Mara @ What's For Dinner? May 4, 2010 at 9:52 am

I always shoot in RAW and use lightroom, so feel free to email/gchat me later if you want help. I’ve done a lot of figuring stuff out on my own. Your pics look great though!


Jenn @ LiveWellFitNow May 4, 2010 at 9:53 am

I can’t go much more than a day without my green either!!!!

Yesterday we had a boil water order here in Boston so I had to wash all dished with spring water or well boiled water. You bet yourself I was washing my blender with 3 bottles of spring water!!!! :) Couldn’t resist!


Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life May 4, 2010 at 9:57 am

Those photos are AWESOME! I love how you were able to catch the water “in action”! :) I would really like to invest in another camera, as I’m finding my photos are somewhat mediocre :( I currently have a Canon SD780 IS, which is nice for fun photos with friends and whatnot, but not great with my “foodie photos”!
Does anyone have any recommendations on other cameras they may use and like but aren’t TOO expensive?


Grace aka Triathlonbabe May 4, 2010 at 9:57 am

Your photography is amazing Angela! you must have an awesome camera.

I also am addicted to GM’s and VOO, just finished my serving of Banana Cashew creme VOO’s this AM and will be full till lunch today.

Have a super day and a great workout!


Wei-Wei May 4, 2010 at 10:08 am

I’ve only tried GMs once… I’m always under the watchful eye of my mom and she is quite disparaging of them. Frozen spinach isn’t very readily available where I live, and fresh spinach… well, let’s just say that I don’t ever get enough to put in GMs. Plus, I really really just like plain, cooked wilted spinach. It’s delicious :D

Have a great day! :)



meghan May 4, 2010 at 10:20 am

shooting in raw is the only way to go! doesn’t really require anything extra, it just gives you SO much more control in the editing process.


Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter May 4, 2010 at 10:23 am

Those pictures are beautiful! Wow!


Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] May 4, 2010 at 11:02 am

That sounds like my dream summer job. Why don’t I live in Canada again?!? : )


Danielle (Coffee Run) May 4, 2010 at 11:07 am

I LOVE your camera. The pic of the water droplets is amazing!

I would work at the farmer’s market!! (If I didn’t live 8 million miles away)


Therese May 4, 2010 at 11:23 am

Thanks for the link on shooting with RAW! I must see if I can use that on my own camera!

And now I have a super craving for a GM!


Mary @ What's Cookin' with Mary May 4, 2010 at 11:34 am

Your GM is making me want one ! I made my mother in law a starberry banana one yesterday… wait, let me go back… I made one for me and my husband bc she insisted that she didn’t want one. She watched me make them and then asked to taste some… She LOVED it… I ended up giving mine to her and making a pineapple banana one (with black boar KALE… she was SURE she wouldn’t like it), which she liked even more :D SUCCESS!


Ashley May 4, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Do you like it RAW? hehe Love the first photo! The last one looks like a fake backdrop!!


Jil May 4, 2010 at 12:25 pm

Mmm this has got me craving a GM!


Diana @ frontyardfoodie May 4, 2010 at 1:51 pm

I wish I lived near you! That’d be so much freaking fun!


Jess @ MTL Veggie May 4, 2010 at 2:10 pm

To think I used to live in Oakville, damn move lol
Good luck with your search :)


Suzanne May 4, 2010 at 4:58 pm

I don’t know why but I just love the pictures you post of rinsing veggies and fruit under your faucet. The water beads are very nature-esque and they look so fresh and clean. :-)


Allison @ Food For Healing May 4, 2010 at 5:07 pm

aw i love the pictures, they are PURDY. especially ones outside, i wish we were having nice weather. We had SNOW again today… like come on its May.


Jolene May 4, 2010 at 6:53 pm

I have to read more about this RAW photography … never heard of it until now!


Becka @Studio222 May 4, 2010 at 9:08 pm

I shoot 100% in RAW and never EVER will shoot jpeg. And I edit in Lightroom and PS3. :) If you have any questions, I’d be happy to help.
