Understanding Raw Photography
The RAW file format is digital photography’s equivalent of a negative in film photography: it contains untouched, ‘raw’ pixel information straight from the digital camera’s sensor, which must be processed to produce the final result.
Understanding Raw Photography is a comprehensive guide that explains the procedure from the start of a photo shoot through each stage of post-processing your image to ultimately displaying it in print or on screen. In depth, jargon-busting text offers hints and tips on interpreting RAW images and gives step-by-step information on processes such as demosaicing and white balance, interpreting and converting images, applying tone curves, adjusting colour saturation and contrast, sharpening an image, adjustment in camera and on a personal computer, and final generation of JPEG or TIFF format.
