The Mission, San Francisco Photography
Shooting in RAW vs. JPEG
Last week I shared part of my editing process with you using the Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop. ACR is a specific dialog window that launches when you try to open RAW image files with Photoshop, for Canon that's a CR2 file and for Nikon it's an NEF file. Shooting in RAW on your DSLR camera means you have capture all image data recorded by your camera's sensor when taking a photograph.
If you shoot in JPEG, even the highest quality version, the image is compressed and loses information. With RAW files you can produce the highest quality image and correct problems in the editing/post-processing phase that might not be possible with the JPEG version.
If you don't normally shoot in RAW you may not be familiar with ACR but you in last week's video post you can get a glimpse into what it looks like and the possibilities when processing. But now that you've had a chance to see the photos in their pure and unedited form, today I'm showing you the final outcome of the photoshoot in the Mission of San Francisco. Take a look below for a virtual walkthrough of the neighborhood.
