Responding to the encouragement of several photographers, I started shooting in RAW vs. jpeg a few weeks ago.
If you want a more in-depth explanation, you can read this summary.
Long story short:
a. Shooting in RAW captures vastly more digital information. These files are enormous digital files.
b. Shooting in RAW requires special processing of each image (much more time consuming. In my case, I am shooting three images with each shutter compression – one properly exposed, one 2 f stops underexposed and one 2 f stops over exposed. Then, all three images are combined in LightRoom 5 and exported with a preset. The preset is HDR Efex Pro (NIK Collection from Google).
c. The end result – the imagery is vastly more robust and more amenable to post capture editing.
