I shoot all my images in the RAW format and it’s been my preferred format for pretty much as long as I have been shooting with a digital SLR.
I like to shoot in RAW for several reasons.
So, for me, RAW is the way to go.
All this said, there are certainly advantages to shooting JPEG. JPEGs are smaller files and so take up less disk space. And you can print JPEGs right out of the camera if you want, without having to do any post processing.
The bottom line is that there really is no right or wrong answer. The choice between RAW and JPEG is up to you and it’s a choice that’s should be based on the workflow that works best for you and your life style.

In our last post, we talked about shutter speed and how it affects the way motion is portrayed in an image.
