A West Berkeley ramble: 9 October 2016

The below photographs were taken with an iPhone 5 SE. The pictures were saved in the RAW image format. This capability became possible when Apple recently enabled newer iPhone cameras to save photo images in the RAW format. I used ProCam to process the photo images. ProCam is an app that takes advantage of the newly available RAW processing ability. Ok, that said, here are six RAW snaps I took in West Berkeley. The images were processed in Adobe Photoshop CS6.
