How do you shoot?  What's your dpp workflow? What's before or after dpp?

THANKS!

Shoot RAW, import to LR4 as DNG. In LR4:

  • Automatic lens correction
  • Crop if needed
  • Choose camera profile (90% of times is Standard, 10% is Landscape)
  • Noise reduction if needed
  • Sharpening
  • WB
  • Exposure
  • Contrast
  • Highlight, Shadows, Whites, Blacks
  • Clarity
  • Vibrance
  • Vignetting if desired

Finished!

That's very similar to my workflow. If I know I am going to to go black and white then I use Silver Efex Pro. And, I often use LR's noise reduction, but if it's trickier or I want it more targeted and specific then I'll use NIK's DFine (or, I guess I should call it Google's DFine).
