Re: Is It capture the memory, or Photographic excellence?

When it comes to kids, events, etc. then of course getting the memory with a technically imperfect photo beats missing the photo while trying to fiddle with settings or set up your lighting just so.

BUT with learning, practice, and the right gear for the job (not saying you need the latest & greatest, but good luck getting action shots or a faraway dark stage with a cell phone), you can at least get closer to photographic "excellence" while capturing precious memories. Since these memories only come around once, I want the best chance of getting a good, pleasing shot when I capture them.

It's also why I shoot RAW: it gives me the best chance to save a photo if I mess up exposure, WB, have poor lighting, etc.
