Photoshop Raw Workflow
Here is my doggy. To brake down the corrections I did in photoshop. First I color corrected to get the correct white balance. Then I adjusted for exposure. After that I either use curves or use the sliders to get the over all look (I went for more contrast here) Then I use the hue, saturation and luminance panal to single out individual colors. Then I split tone the highlights one color and the darks the opposite color for punchiness (this is a trick widely used in video). After that I adjust for noise reduction using the luminance tool. Once that is all done I either save it as a jpeg or bring it through regular photoshop for more detailing.
