In general shooting in RAW format uses a lot more file storage than JPEG. What am I gaining when shooting RAW? Besides file size are there any downsides to shooting RAW?
I’ve got a couple of spots of dust on the sensor of my Canon 20D. A rocket blower isn’t shifting them, and I’m ridiculously scared of some of the more direct methods for cleaning sensors — what methods/systems have you tried, and how successful have they been?
I know that this effect occurs when there’s a shallow depth of field.
My question is, what are the various ways I can increase this effect in my photos when I’m taking them?
Note that I’m not asking how to use an editing program to achieve this effect after in post production or after the image is captured.
