I’ve said on here that my preference is to shoot in JPEG to get the discipline to get it right in camera. But there are occasions when shooting in raw just makes sense.
When there is a mixed lighting situation, raw can help you decide at the edit stage what looks best colour wise.
Raw, like everything else technical in photography, is a tool to help you create the images you want. If it does what you want it to do then don’t hesitate to use it.
