What is a RAW photo editor and why do I want one?
The reality is that a RAW image editing workflow using a RAW photo editor is one of the best ways for you to have complete control over your images. This is especially true for wedding photographers shooting uncontrolled events, where rule number one is to get the shot, and rule number two is to get a better shot. Even the most seasoned photographer will choose an authentic moment over perfect camera settings, when push comes to shove.
I’ve always felt that getting it right in camera is the most important component in creating great images. Too often you hear people say, “You can fix that later.” Relying on post production to save an image (because of laziness or poor technique) is different than enhancing or fine tuning what’s already there.
