In photography, sharpness is everything. Blurry photos generally don’t belong anywhere but the trash. But sometimes you’ll take a photo that’s great except for some blurriness. It’s no wonder, since even things like lens quirks can get in the way of sharpness. And meanwhile, if the blurriness isn’t too bad, then sharpening on your computer can save the picture.
Almost everyone who’s spent more than a little time with a camera shoots to RAW. After all, RAW lets you make bad photos average, average photos excellent, and excellent photos even better. That’s because it offers significantly more image data than, for example, JPG. And thanks to this it gives you room for much better edits. So let’s take a look at how to work with it.
Almost every photo requires at least some adjustment to exposure and dynamic range. With RAW photos in particular, you can get more out of them than you may have expected. This comes in handy if you didn’t watch your exposure settings when shooting or you are shooting a scene with harsh highlights and dark shadows. A common example is a landscape or portrait photo where a part of the photo contains a bright sky and another is covered in shadows.
