    Default Shooting in RAW

    Ok. So since I have no idea how to PP anything anyway, I figured why not go ahead and switch to shooting RAW before I start learning, right? I found a tutorial on ilovephotography that seems pretty easy to follow, so I guess I'll start there.

    Anyone have any advice for a complete newbie switching to RAW? Any tricks, tips you wish you would have been told when you switched?

    you'll love it! If you are really nervous about it, there should be a function where you can shoot a raw + jpeg at the same time until you get used to what you're doing.

    I agree with loving it. It makes editing sooooooo much easier. I LOVE ACR! I just recently made the total switch to RAW, instead of RAW+JPEG b/c of more room on my card. I don't know what to do with just the jpegs anyways!

    Grrrr....I took some shots tonight and tried to open the raw files. At first I had it, but for some reason it opened every single photo I took. I'd already downloaded the files to iphoto and then deleted all the ones I didn't want. (is that wrong?)

    So when I opened them in the bridge thing, it came up with all photos, so I deleted them all out of there and tried to open just the ones I want to open and it's not working. I have no idea what I've done wrong. I'm shutting down everything and walking away for a bit and then coming back to try.

    UGH....I am not good with computer programs. I seriously can't even open simple files.

    Don't mean to hijack the thread but why is it better to shoot in RAW? I was reading some stuff on it online and most people said it is not worth shooting in RAW, but on this forum everyone loves RAW. I switched to RAW a few weeks ago but did not see a difference between Jpegs and Raw, the only thing was that I had more options for WB in LR.
