John Short writes, â€œWhy do we read so often that it is best to shoot your images in RAW and not as JPEGs?â€
To answer the question, John posted a tutorial showing the basic steps in processing RAW files with Adobe Lightroom to demonstrate the benefits of shooting in RAW mode.
By opening the photo in Lightroomâ€™s Develop module and adjusting the Exposure, Recovery, Blacks, Fill Light, Clarity and Vibrancy sliders, he recovers the lost details of an image with blown highlights and was able to generally improve the appearance of the photograph.
