I've been researching this for months. I think I'm closer, but still not quite there.
So, the basic question - have I got this right?
I shoot with a Nikon D5500, shooting 14-bit RAW NEF, Picture control set to 'Flat' which I assume is the 'please don't mess with it' setting.
The following is assuming my lighting remains constant; if it changes then I would need a new camera profile.
I'm shooting in a studio, so lighting is controllable.
Using my standard lighting setup at nominal [& reproducible] defaults I've set the camera's default white balance using the grey card on my ColorChecker Passport.
Having set that white balance, I photographed the Passport's colour card; dropped the resulting RAW NEF through Adobe DNG Converter & then used that to create a profile with the ColorChecker Passport software.
Opening the same DNG in Photo RAW, I've assigned that profile in the Camera Calibration tab as Default for this camera.
My monitor[s] are calibrated using the i1 Pro Profiler.
In Photoshop, under Colour settings, I have the following...
Significantly, RGB as Adobe98 & Grey Gamma 2.2 - my print workflow will be to RGB not CMYK so the profile there is at default.
Working on info picked up via Google, I've ensured the RGB menu shows my correct monitor calibration profile, but I didn't select it.
Let's assume for the purpose of this exercise I'm going to continue with my photograph of the Passport.
In Photoshop I go to View > Proof setup > Custom & set my intended output, Hahnemuhler [several specific papers & canvases to choose from, ICC Profiles obtained directly from the print shop I will be using]
I've read Hahnemuhler is designed for Relative Colorimetric & Black point compensation, so that's how I've set it.
I can now toggle between paper simulation or not, then back into photoshop main.
I check for out of gamut, all is OK.
My blacks look like they will warm slightly, the darkest blue on the Passport looks like it won't be quite saturated enough... but overall it's acceptable & I'm happy.
Now what do I do?
I save the picture as TIFF, the profile it wants to embed is Adobe (RGB) 1998.
Is that correct? Is it my camera profile, or is it replacing it with my Workflow profile... which is also Adobe98?
Did I miss a step, do I need to assign a specific profile, or am I good to go?
Will I, assuming I was within tolerance on all the above steps, get a print that looks like my 'intent' of 'Hahnemuhle' - including the slight [acceptable] changes I've already seen in the soft proof?
Back to the main question - have I got this right?
