Most of our listeners probably know about the advantages of RAW capture over JPEG, but many cameras also offer a variety of options for configuring RAW files. This week, we’ll discuss the differences between compressed and uncompressed RAW formats, bit depth, and also take a look at Nikon’s smaller RAW file options in cameras like the Nikon D850 and Z6/Z7 mirrorless cameras.

We’ll be hosting an online “hangout” on Tuesday, Dec. 15th from 8-9:30pm US Eastern Time.
This week, we were lucky enough to get our hands on a production copy of Nikon’s newest pro-level Z-mount lens. We tested the new 14-24mm f/2.8S Nikkor Z and came away quite impressed. Hear our thoughts on this lens, how it compares to similar Nikon super-wide lenses, and whether or not it makes sense for us to own one. Many thanks to our friends at B&H Photo for loaning us this lens to test!

Occasionally, we do casual portraits for family and friends, and we always want the result to look professional. This week, we’ll discuss some fundamental techniques for retouching portraits using simple editing tools that work really well. In addition to Lightroom & Photoshop, we also took a look at ON 1 Portrait AI, which is an outstanding portrait retouching application.
Subject isolation is a powerful creative tool in photography, especially with portraiture. This week, Jason and Rick explain a variety of ways to get clean subject isolation in your photographs both in-camera and with editing software.
