my RAW postprocessing Workflow

My workflow starts with the settings in the used DSLR Camera. Usually, I work generally in the Manual "M" mode and always with RAW format. The RAW format is like a digital negative, which stipulates the maximum of digital image information of each recording.

During the shoot I prefer Base setting cameras native ISO areas, ISO 100, 200, 400, 800 and 1600 as maximum. Because I get almost to much Light in Cyprus I use also the digtal ISO 160, 320, 640 and ISO 1250. This digital ISO reducing the brightnes Image parts of native ISO 200, 400, 800, and 1600 about 1/3. All digital ISO´s affect the maximum colour range from the respective sensor of the camera.


For the post processing of RAW files in to the computer I'm using the Adobe Raw Converter (ACR) in Adobe Lightroom ore Adobe Photoshop. After the RAW import from the CF-Card Reader in to Lightroom following small corrections on the Files, maybe Aperture, Withe balance, Shadows and Light, etc. Important, all corrections in ACR are without changing the RAW base.


All post-processing steps on the PC be destructive, which means that the original RAW recording data is preserved in the original.  All imported and processed images are catalogued in Lightroom. To the EXIF existing already from the camera data, E.g. ISO, Aperture, lens, date, I insert more information in the recordings. So is the copyright, place, animal / species, any peculiarity, etc. in the recordings. Therefore I use the Lightroom Tool "Ultratag+Pro40" von Coolcolours


The further processing of individual shots up to saving for the Web or for the expression is me in Photoshop CC. While I use also plug-ins from Topaz Labs, NIK software, as well as the PS actions "UltraFocal + Pro234" by Coolcolours depending on the need.       


Local printouts I finished with the CANON MPX 850 up to DIN A4. Printing and photo books I'm make by "Saal digital" in Germany
