Shoot Raw

NPhoto - - Nikon Skills -

This is the kind of shoot­ing sce­nario where your cam­era’s Raw qual­ity set­ting can re­ally show it’s worth. Shoot­ing por­traits af­ter dark will of­ten mean tricky me­ter­ing, as there will be bright high­lights and very deep shad­ows. Raw of­fers greater dy­namic range than JPEG for­mat, which means that there’s greater head­room for re­cov­er­ing de­tail in blown high­lights or dark ar­eas. A sec­ond, equally use­ful ben­e­fit on a shoot like this is the abil­ity to ad­just white bal­ance, post-shoot, with ex­actly the same re­sults as if you’d done so be­fore shoot­ing.
