[If I was as good as JG to photograph, it wouldn`t matter if I shot in jpeg or raw. Man, JG can shoot!
I think many of us might take a look in the mirror and ask ourselves if JG is right when he says that raw is compensation for poor photography...... Obviously the man sells enough photos, maybe that should tell us others something.....
Its very much an individual issue. I don't shoot much when I meter off a gray card before each shot. I don't shoot much when I have a great deal of control of the lighting either, beyond trying to position relative to the sun. I won't even pretend to get it right in the camera every time.
There are differences in shooting styles.
I'm not poking fun at him as a photographer. He's better than me. I'm poking fun at what he said about shooting raw. I have the greatest respect for someone that has the confidence to shoot JPEG only, BUT if you are going to manipulate much of anything after the shot, RAW is the format.
