Why Switch from JPEG to RAW? (Podcast 427)

When you first get started in digital photography, it’s much easier to just leave your camera in JPEG shooting mode. Sooner or later though, most people decide that it’s time to switch to RAW, and once we switch, we usually wish we’d switched much sooner. Today we’re going to look at a the reasons why it makes sense to switch.

A Beautiful Anarchy with David duChemin (Podcast 424)

A Beautiful Anarchy with David duChemin (Podcast 424)

Every so often, someone writes a book that changes everything. A book so profound that everyone with a desire to live not only a creative life, but a richer, fuller life, will read.
