Shooting in RAW gives you much higher quality photos. I'm not sure why some people are making it sound like it's much more difficult to shoot something in RAW, it's not really. Take the photo, import into photoshop, save as JPEG. Not too bad. I'm sure there's lots more advanced stuff than this, but you don't have to be a professional photographer to shoot in this format.

Also, I'm not a professional photographer, so take this advice in that light (pun not intended). If you are willing to invest the time and money to shoot professional quality photos, it makes sense to use artificial light. But if you're not that invested, the sun can make up for your lack of skills, and the results can be more interesting and organic looking. I would recommend shooting at sunset or when it's overcast though; otherwise it's just way too bright.
