I have been shooting in RAW for about as long as I have been shooting in manual mode. When it comes to editing though, I wasn't seeing the power of RAW until recently. I started zero-ing my photos in Lightroom instead of letting Lightroom add values to take a RAW photo closer to a JPG photo. I have found that this provides me with more possibilities when editing and more room to "save" a photo that I may have otherwise overlooked.

"I took to photography like a duck to water. I never wanted to do anything else. Excitement about the subject is the voltage which pushes me over the mountain of drudgery necessary to produce the final photograph." - Berenice Abbott
