In this episode of the art of editing

I wanted to show the power of shooting your images in Raw compared to Jpeg. Just to be clear and on the same page with everyone reading this article, Raw means that the image was captured in an uncompressed format ie. (Nikon – .NEF, Canon – . CR2) compared to a Jpeg image that is a fully baked and finished image. In an easier way to understand it: a Jpeg image has 10 crayons to edit with while a Raw image has a 1000 crayons to edit with.  Those are generic numbers but you get the point.

I was in my office playing with my D800 and thought, I wonder how under exposed (dark) I can capture an image and still process it to look the way I saw it with my naked eye. This image was quite underexposed on the side of the camera that was facing the me but with a little bit of editing I was able to create an image that has a very shallow depth of field and showcases some of the awesome colour in the lens. Now you can absolutely edit a jpeg image BUT you are limited with how far you can push your image to look the way you want.
