Karen:

I am probably what would be called a Post Processing Minimalist. I try and get as much as possible "correct" in the camera: white balance, exposure, aperture, ISO, shutter, etc. I am keenly aware that once I leave the scene, all memory of color temperature, lighting, highlight/shadow detail, etc., will vanish into the ethers. This leaves me with as little as possible to do in post processing, which typically iincludes: A look at White and Black points in Levels, Shadow/Highlight adjustment, Contrast in the Curves tool, Cropping if necessary, and a bit of UnSharp Mask if appropriate. I may apply all these tools to some images, and only portions of them to others.

My goal is to "capture" images, not "create" them.
