hello, I know its a stupid question or questions and I have tried to find the answer everywhere and I have come across so many possibilities that I am overwhelmed so this is my question to the experts. I just did my first photoshoot on monday, gorgeous girl, her first shoot as well as mine, we did indoor with two off camera 285Hv, one of them was not working all the time, we took around 1500 pics, of course not all of them are good enough so that is why I took so many. Now I have to browse through and pick the best ones, I shot in RAW with a copy in JPEG(dont know if its normal when I look at both pics, the RAW is on focus and the JPEG is out of focus, same pic, is this normal?) I am using DPP(Digital photo professional) that came with my Canon 40D. I have photoshop too(I think I have the one before CS2 on my computer, I have CS4 but my hardware needs an update.) Bottom line, I have a whole bunch a pictures in Raw and I dont know what to do next, there are some pics that I have to smooth the skin(cover some little imperfections), I noticed some wrinkles on my backdrop(dont know how to clean this to get a nice background). any ideas where to start? any links? can I work with the raw pics in photoshop or do I need DPP for anything at all.
