The Dual Pixel RAW advantage
From the outset, Clive knew that his portraits would be printed in Digital Photographer magazine, so he shot in Canon's Dual Pixel RAW mode to ensure the highest quality, and to enable him to access advanced adjustments when editing. "It definitely makes me think differently when I know I'm shooting for print," he continues. "You're almost imagining that ink on paper. My process is always to shoot RAW, as I want to extract the greatest amount of data from the file.
"With Canon, shooting DPRAW gives you extra advantages, as you can use Digital Photo Professional to access excellent tools like micro adjustment and bokeh shift," Clive continues. His DPRAW images were shot in colour, but then converted to black and white in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic to create a timeless feel. He prefers to keep that part of the process as simple as possible.
"Some people have very complex ways of doing a black and white conversion, but I use a standard profile in Lightroom Classic," he says.
