The Wild and Wacky World of JPEG

Without getting into the RAW vs JPEG arguments, for those who use JPEG capture there are a number of picture styles available, as well as all sorts of digital filters. This is subtly different to shooting RAW and then aplying filters, because it implies instead that we have a particular intent before the shutter button is pressed. So we look at our subject, decide what we are trying to achieve with it, and shoot around that, maybe or maybe not using the various image styles that we have at our disposal. Likewise, just like loading a camera with a particular type of film, we set a style and then go out and seek images for that style. The obvious example is monochrome, where using a mono setting means that we look for suitable subjects right from the start, which is a totally different mindset to shooting in colour.

I came across this small building in one of the speciality gardens at Rounddhay Park. I had the SMC Pentax-F 17-28mm Fisheye Zoom on the Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR and decided to see what effects I could dial in to make, perhaps, this quirky building even more quirky.

Natural. This is my usual setting.

Cross processing.

Of course, the parameters can be changed for all of these settings, so the amount of control possible is amazing.
