over exposure

I was at a family reunion / 89 birthday party .
Anyway , I took a couple of shots of the great grand-father and 4 generations of kids .
Then all the family got in and their neighbor said " get in there , I can use camera . I set it up for ISO 800 indoors , 400 under canopies and 100 in Sun .
He switched to 800 - so every shot he took was blown out / over exposed .
I took him just hold down button , count to 3 and do again .
Camera +7D , lens was 17-55 , shot in Raw and jpeg .
Any way to fix these ?

Re: over exposure

Short version -- No

Long version --- can't recover data that isn't there.

Re: over exposure

While you cannot recover data that is not there and have it look like a real photo, it does not mean that you could not try other creative effects.

I played around with it in LR3 cropped in a closer and brough out the color detail that is there. With CS3 you should be able to achive the sme effect and even more by using some more artistic though and design turn it into something that could looks something like a water color or other textured drawn type shot.

This will not bring it out to be the photo you had intended, but get those creative juices flowing and you might find that you may have a real gem as a piece of art.

Re: over exposure

I'd agree that it looks hopeless. The ONLY hope is that you've shown us a 800 pixel jpg image. Do you have a RAW image? You MIGHT have a sliver more chance if you do.

Apparently you needed an idiot proof camera before handing it over!

Re: over exposure

When handing your camera over for someone else to use, set it to P (for professional) ... even my wife takes good pics with my 7D on P and set for JPG (although, unless the camera is in M, it should have given decent results).

Re: over exposure

Hind site , I did not even take the XTI or the tripod and remote . I even left the 10-22 in hotel room , card readers at home and never installed the software for 7D .
I generally copy everyones pictures to my Mac and then burn all on CD's and hand out . My fault , I have a check list for over nighters that I did not use .
Thanks , I will keep playing with the shots .
