Shooting JPEG vs. Raw Files
Shooting JPEG vs. Raw Files

Here are the basics, so you can determine which is best for you.

JPEG images are the standard format, processed in the camera, so it needs less post work. The files take up less storage space, and are compatible across most devices. It caters to convenience over quality.

RAW images are unprocesed, preserving more photo information. Its settings can be modified, allowing more control over the final look. They take up more space, but elicit a higher photo quality photo. So, when you're shooting for client or portfolio work, and have time to do post work, try shooing in RAW.


Hometown: New York City

Equipment: iPhone 5S

Cara Llewellyn has made quite a name for herself as a photographer, and with over 68 thousand Instagram followers, her distinct style has garnered a lot of attention.

She uses her iPhone 5S to capture that sense of "mystery or hint of magic" in her photos, and it's that exact whimsical, ethereal quality that drew us in. As a professional book designer, she knows what it means to have good composition, and we can definitely see her 10 years of experience playing a role in her photographic design.

She understands that “there's a limited window to grab someone's attention, and if you don't have them saying 'oh wow' right away, you've already lost your audience." She definitely has our attention, and we're proud to have been able to partner with her, to showcase her work in our Premium Album. It was the first time she'd seen her photographs on paper, and with the many stunning images she takes every day, we're excited for what's to come.
