the difference between RAW and jpeg tutorial by Megan Squires

The RAW deal

RAW vs jpeg. If this is something you’ve pondered recently, chances are you are currently shooting in jpeg. And if you are shooting in jpeg, chances are you feel like you should be shooting in RAW. Just like that diet you committed to as your New Year’s resolution, you know you should do it, you know you’ll feel and look better if you do, and you know the end result will be something you’re so proud of.

But does shooting in(…)
