Setting your camera's format to 'RAW' rather than JPG or TIFF. A RAW photo has no in-camera processing done to it, a truly raw picture. Some call it a digital negative.

I recently shot RAW for the first time. I used the RAW + jpeg mode. When trying to get the photos from the camera, all I got was 2 jpeg files for each picture, both about the same size (around normal jpeg size ~3.0mb). Where are the RAW files? :?

How are you attempting to access them? What brand of camera is it? (Most brands have their own tools for downloading.)

I don't know of any camera that produces dual jpeg images. They can produce RAW + JPEG, some allow various sizes for the jpeg version but raw files are all the same size. You may be using software that's converting the RAW file to JPEG (larger file) and the smaller file is most likely the JPEG straight from the camera. We need to know what type of software and camera you're using before we can give better advice.
