Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video The benefits of shooting RAW, part of Shooting a Time-Lapse Movie from a Window.
…I'm a big fan of shooting RAW time lapse, but I must…say that there's a couple of things you gotta keep in mind.…Now before we talk about the risks and the…challenges, let's talk about the benefits so you're motivated.…One of the things I love about RAW is its ability to work with shadows…and highlights, in a much more dynamic way than you can do with the jpeg file.…When shooting things like this, night time photography, it's fantastic.…To lift things out of the dark and recover some of those highlights.…But one of the things I really love, is that…sometimes you might want to shoot transitional times like sunrise or sunset.…
And when you shoot RAW, you've…got tremendous opportunity to recover exposure.…Sometimes two or three stops in either direction.…So what I'll often end up doing is underexposing when…the sun is down, so that the shots are a…bit dark, and then as the sun comes up the…scene's going to get brighter, and eventually it's going to blow out.…But I've got that room to recover with the RAW file.…
