Whether you have a smartphone, point & shoot or DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex), If you want to get the most from your camera, you should consider shooting using the RAW Mode / File Format instead of JPEGs (or a combo of RAW + JPEG). JPEGs are like a “cooked pie”. Once you have one, you can’t go back and make it into something radically different (without destroying it!). RAW images give you the basic ingredients that can be “cooked” / edited in a variety of ways. RAW images are like negatives (in the pre-digital days) and JPEGs are the equivalent to a final print.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Differences between RAW and JPEG image files
  • Pros and cons of RAWs and JPEGs
  • How to access RAW/JPEG modes on your camera
  • Why shoot both, RAW and JPEG, at the same time
  • Editing advantages of RAW with Adobe’s Lightroom demonstrations
  • Destructive vs. non-destructive image editing
  • Each camera has it’s own unique RAW format, learn about DNG - a more universal solution

Several example images will demonstrate the advantages (and draw backs) of RAW vis. JPGs. Bring your camera and learn how to choose between these two file formats or you can select both for each picture you take.

Instructor Bio:

Ken Rothmuller has been shooting images since getting his first camera as a teenager. Later in life he had both a B/W and color darkroom before switching over to a digital workflow. More recently he has had the opportunity to study under some great mentors, including: Jay MaiselJoel MeyerowitzEddie Soloway, and Margo Davis.

Ken especially enjoys traveling with his camera allowing him to see new places more deeply, cementing memories and giving him the opportunity to interact with locals.

He has taught photo workshops and photography courses at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA. You can reach Ken at:
