1. Use RAW Format
Shooting in RAW gives you more editing flexibility in post-processing. It captures more detail, allowing for better highlights, shadows, and color adjustments. Every professional photographer who uses their phone refers to RAW image data to get the most out of editing their images, whether you use VSCO, Adobe Lightroom, or another app of choice. It might take some time to get used to the editing adjustments for RAW files, but it's way easier than you think, and it's not scary — we promise!
How To Do It:
- Open Settings > Camera > Formats.
- Enable "Apple ProRAW" (available on newer models).
- You can also shoot RAW images in the Moment Pro Camera App for even greater manual control.
Pro Tip: Remember, RAW files are larger than JPEGs! Ensure you have enough storage or regularly back up your shots. If you need a breakdown of what RAW files mean, check out this article for greater education.
