You know the drill: Vacations, weekend trips, and even ordinary walks in the woods... They all churn out photos, but there’s never time to process and ponder them. But then you suddenly run into situations where you’re stuck at home and you don’t know what to do with your time. How can you turn this lemon of a situation into lemonade?
RAW’s rawness makes it a foundation you can build on. If you don’t arhive your RAW files, you can’t really do new and better takes on your pictures in the future. That goes double in a world where technology and software are constantly evolving and improving. Today’s new processing algorithms can get you much better outputs than in the past. This, too, is a great reason to always keep your RAWs.
In a previous post we touched on just how fleeting digital photographs are. While we're capturing images with the latest d-SLRs and smartphones, these photos have a much greater chance of disappearing before we have grandkids than the images snapped with film cameras of old.
