About this book

This title explains the procedure from the start of a photo shoot through each stage of post-processing. In depth, jargon-busting text offers hints and tips on interpreting RAW images. It includes expert advice given by professional photographers, using practical examples with the aid of diagrams and charts. 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 with in depth, jargon-busting text offering hints and tips on interpreting RAW images and gives step-by-step information on processes such as demosaicing and white balance, adjusting colour saturation and contrast, sharpening an image, adjustment in camera and on a personal computer, and final generation of JPEG or TIFF format.

David Taylor is an award-winning landscape and travel photographer from Hexham in Northumberland. His work has taken him all over the world, from the sun-kissed beaches and azure seas of Zanzibar to the icy wastes of the Arctic Circle, but his first love remains the wild countryside and rugged coastline of his home county, which he has photographed extensively.
