I'm curious, what tools do you guys go to first or most often to correct an image that is either under-exposed or lacking contrast... 1. Levels? (which is a histogram style tool in Aperture and C1 - sliders for blacks and whites in LR) 2. Curves? (another histogram style tool) 3. Exposure Sliders? (exposure, contrast, highlights and shadows) Why? I have to admit that I always found wrestling with curves to be a bit of a challenge. It was very difficult to get good results. And to be honest, I don't think I ever really used levels either. My tendency was to adjust with the normal exposure sliders. Have I been missing out?
