    Why shoot raw? My usual response: Do you want a few million colors? Or several tens of billions? #CaseClosed

    +Ed White I agree… mine is usually – hey – if you mess up like I have.. you might just be able to save your bacon…

    I have a terrible tendency to shoot many different ways lately.. and when you walk from a studio setup to landscape and forget to oh lets say check your camera settings.. it can be painful… mainly after I get done hitting myself after looking at the shots ….

    Well, for me it gives me incredible exposure and color latitude. It's not so much that it lets me correct, it just lets me plan to get the most data possible preserved into the JPG. This, for example, would not have been possible in JPG: https://plus.google.com/108672910767907505588/posts/GVMFS9ssGxH

    JPEG = a print
    RAW = a neg

    And we all know how shit our photos used to look if you tried making copies from prints….
