Re: Need LR4 workflow advice for large event photography, RAW vs. JPG

When shooting JPGs you are pretty much committed to the image that come out of the camera. Any edits degrade the image and if you have blown highlights or strong shadows it impossible to pull any details from them. What I do is shoot both RAW & JPG. I go through the JPGs to see what's good and worth using as is. If there are images that look good but need some editing I have the RAW file to work with. RAW files give you more control over edits. It's like having a safety net.
