Shooting in Raw Format

When to Start Shooting in Raw Format?

Previously, I discussed the Raw vs Jpg and the benefits of shooting in Raw Format. Here are a few significant reasons for using Raw:

Shooting in Raw format will give you more control over how your photograph shows and even be able to correct several small flaws when you capture the photo, such as the exposure. You can quickly fix the white balance in a RAW file if the white balance cannot be set appropriately with the camera when taking a photo.

By shooting in Raw format, photographer can capture and maintain more data.

Are you ready to shoot in Raw format?

If you choose to shoot in RAW, you can enlarge photos beyond the sensor’s resolution of your camera, and the scene of the image will contain high contrast. However, the image will not be ready for display (in print or digitally) right out of the camera. Raw files need post-processing, which means that you need to make them compatible with printers or displays. 

If you are ready to do post-processing, by all means, start shooting in raw and enjoy the benefits. 

We offer private Lightroom and Photoshop lessons. If you want to start shooting Raw or already have Raw files and want to learn to edit them professionally, I highly recommend taking a few classes on Post-Processing. Contact us to book your private lesson.

On the other hand, if you just started digital photography, I strongly suggest shooting in Jpg and stay more focused on your photography techniques. By improving your photography skills, even jpg files provide enough resolution for fabulous images. Therefore, taking a few photography classes is more beneficial for you.


We offer many photography workshops for all levels. Digital Photography Bootcamp is a complete photography course for beginners. It is a six-week program and includes six classroom sessions and two field trips.
