It’s easy to run a marathon of words explaining what RAW files mean to photographers – with just the opening of the article being a thousand word paragraph. However, I think that would only do justice for the photographer.
It’s been for some time now, that Kristin and I have been rubbing our heads together in hopes that we figure out why some people get feverish when we decline their request for the RAW files. Never mind the hot topic of the week; this is the hot topic of the century… in the world of photography of course.
Moving forward, the fact of the matter is you wouldn’t eat a raw burger. Instead, you’d ask for a new one and a discount before you leave a nasty review on social media. So why is it challenging to understand that every product such as photos need to be made well done before it is served?
This leads me to my conclusion. RAW files aren’t the finish product, just as a raw burger is a bad idea. Besides using the correct setting when taking the photo, there are certain aspects of the photo that will only come alive during post-production (editing).
Knowing the modern-day consumer, you would have checked your photographer’s portfolio before hiring them.
With that said, surely there is a process the photographer goes through in order to get to the final product – respect that and TRUST the process.
You welcome ;)
