Shooting RAW v/s JPG
« on: December 03, 2017, 04:58:03 PM »
I wanted to show my friend why I shoot raw I took this over exposed shot which was shot as raw+jpg
I processed jpg to recover shadow while I processed raw in rawtherapee to recover shadow.
No sharpening applied and results are side by side for reference.

 Further enhancement can be done in processed raw file as lot of details in dark area is already revealed.

Best accessory of camera is 3" behind it,
And mine needs an upgrade. . . ;)

Thank you, Yagnesh.

That is a very good example of why raw processing is better for image control in the finished picture.

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.
