Hi Lauren....... if you have Lightroom or PSCS3 you can do a lot of it right in the raw converter if you shoot raw, which I would.

depending on the camera you use, you can shoot in raw mode, which is a file format like jpg but it saves all the data in your camera like exposure, white balance, etc and when you open it in photoshop, it allows you to use the photoshop raw converter to change the exposure or white balance.
