Embrace shooting raw
4

In the past I was a jpeg only shooter. However, since I discovered how easy it is to pull shadows - with minimal IQ degradation - when shooting raw, I now shoot jpeg + raw. The scene below, for example, would have been extremely challenging to salvage had it been shot in jpeg only. So, for those who are hesitant, I highly recommend shooting raw (when time is of the essence and bracketing isn't feasible), especially in high contrast scenes such as the one below.
