Feel like I'm sticking my head up to get shot at here

I shoot RAW sometimes..... most times I shoot jpg. If I see something difficult to expose I switch to RAW. Most times I know the jpg is going to come out as good as I need it to.

I can't defend what I do from a technical viewpoint but from practical experience I get what I want without all the tweaking in between. I am partially red-green colour blind so I don't change white balance with confidence. Exposure changes are just not needed with most pictures and small amounts can be applied to the jpgs.

I can do the Rawshooter / Photoshop thing but I have to force myself to get on with it. It is not a part of the process I enjoy. Maybe that will change as I have more time to fill.. maybe.
