Firstly understand, what is RAW? RAW is a file format that captures all image data recorded by the sensor when you take a photo. Which is compressed or lost in other formats like JPEG. So, shooting in RAW allows you to produce higher quality images, and also gives you the facility to correct problems.
Majority of the professional photographers shoot in RAW, because it allows for more flexibility in making the pictures look best in post-processing.
Here are the main reasons why professional photographers shoot in RAW:
1. Raw Files gives them more potential for fine-tuning photos and better the overall quality.
2. Raw files also contain much more picture information than JPEGs, especially with regards to tonal range.
3. RAW files are much less prone to problems like banding and pixelation when any raw adjustments are made.
