Shooting RAW

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted something to my blog. 
I did see something interesting at the DPReview site, though. It's about the dynamic range available in your RAW files. If you've been shooting exclusively JPEG, you are missing out on an enormous amount of latitude you have in adjusting highlights and shadows that you simply do not have in a JPEG file. Does it mean you should always shoot RAW? Not necessarily. But if you have a pro style DSLR or mirrorless system that is capable of capturing both RAW and JPEG simultaneously, that's the best route. It's the way I've been shooting for many years.
