small steps. ie don't go pressing the double arrow buttons on exposure as they adjust way too fast. adjust 1/3 of a stop at a time until it looks right. Also white balance then apply filters then adjust exposure as some filters make the picture look over or underexposed. Also if you want to get a soft focus effect for portraits adjust the clarity setting it will smooth out the skin and give pictures a dreamy effect. It's handy for hiding blemishes

I use LR4 a TON! I use it for Digital Asset Management as well as a light bit of editing. At most, I typically crop and adjust exposures, if needed.

If you want a ROUGH break down on importing and cataloging, let me know and I'll toss something together.
