photography tip

Shoot In RAW

RAW image files hold all data captured by the camera’s image sensor. While the files are larger than JPEGs, you have more control when editing the images later on in post-processing. With files in the RAW format, you can scale back any blown-out highlights and pull the details out of darker shadows. As beach scenes are often over-bright, you have a better chance of resurrecting an overexposed photo with RAW.
