Understanding Raw Photography by Andy Rouse
"Understanding RAW Photography" takes the form of an easy-to-follow workflow, offering enthusiastic amateur photographers everywhere a beginning to discover their potential. It opens up a whole new world of image processing, allowing you to perfect your images simply and quickly. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and ready to be used or printed and yet they allow far more flexibility than a JPEG will. "Understanding RAW Photography" covers everything that you need to know right from the start of a shoot, to processing your image and ultimately displaying it in print or on screen.
