Previously I only used the .jpg files from my camera. Then I began shooting in RAW for difficult lighting situations. Slowly I’ve come to the point where I only shoot in RAW. Perhaps today’s comparisons can give you an idea as to why.

What a difference shooting in RAW can make!

jpg vs raw jpeg

jpg version

I was going through and deleting some photos from last summer when I came upon the photo above. I almost hit delete, but I was curious what the photo was even of so I decided to take a peek at the RAW file before deleting.

This was the same photo in RAW format:

RAW night walk koyasan okunoin

RAW version of same photo

At first I thought I had opened the wrong photo, but then I checked the file name and sure enough they were the same.

I took this while walking through the Okunoin Cemetery just after sunset. I didn’t have a tripod so I just set my camera on rocks or headstones to take long exposures. Obviously, this one @ 30 seconds wasn’t long enough for a jpg photo, but in RAW it almost looks properly exposed.
