Back to Basics (Episode 5): RAW vs. JPEG, Histograms and “Expose to the Right”
I’m halfway to 10 with the fifth instalment of Back to Basics, my video tutorial series covering fundamental topics of DSLR photography. In this episode I cover three interesting and related topics:
- RAW vs. JPEG
- And the concept, “Expose to the right”
In this episode, I effectively make the case for shooting in RAW over JPEG. Do you shoot RAW? If not, why not?
I hope you enjoy the video – please share your feedback in the comments below. New topic suggestions are always welcome!
