Save in RAW

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

If you al­ready know the ins and outs of your cam­era but you’re still shoot­ing JPEG, it’s time to dive into the world of RAW neg­a­tives. Think of a RAW file as an un­pro­cessed dig­i­tal neg­a­tive from the cam­era. When you open it up it looks flat and dull, be­cause it’s just data pulled right from the sen­sor.

Learn­ing how to process RAW gives you sev­eral ad­van­tages. For one, a RAW file con­tains more data than a com­pressed JPEG, giv­ing you more dy­namic range to work with. It also teaches you how to tune your own images ac­cord­ing to your own pref­er­ences, with­out re­ly­ing on a man­u­fac­turer’s im­age pro­cess­ing en­gine to do it for you.
