Not talking Professional sports. I'm referring to kids and high school sports. Do you worry about PP? I guess I can see adjusting the exposure on some, but how far do you go?

I shoot everything in RAW and process through LightRoom. I set up presets for the specific venues and either daylight or night lighting, and then have the preset applied during import. I then crop, make minor tweaks, straighten, and export as jpeg. The preset will have any number of adjustments depending on the venue.

I'm not doing huge volumes though, maybe two or three games a week depending on the sport and season.

I freelance for some sports companies and they always do (some) post processing. Now keep in mind, it is typically just a slight exposure edjust or maybe some cropping. It doesnt get much more complicated then that unless there is a particularly important shot.

Another person that shoots in RAW, process in Lightroom and use presets I have setup for specific venues. I can't imagine doing it any other way, at least not now. Shooting in RAW allows me to easily correct white balance and use ISO 6400 at our poorly lighted venues (high school and elementary school gyms plus ballparks in the summer.)

Also shoot RAW and process Lightroom. I like to shoot close and crop closer.

If you're shooting volume for 'on spec', then I would say no, don't do much. If you're working on your portfolio or shooting for a paper, then sure, why not. I also use LR and once you get the hang of it, cropping and adjustments are a snap.

Any shot that gets sent to someone or published on the internet via agency or on my website gets processed. Period. I don't want to have unprocessed photos where the public can see it.

You only want your BEST images out in the public.

Same here - I shoot figure skating, synchro and hockey in the winter and use LR/PSE. Exposure, crop and sharpen, then out they go to Smugmug.

Yes. I use LR to crop, do lens correction, set WB, and adjust exposure.

+1.
Pretty well every shot needs a crop, a check on level, some minor exposure adjustment, a sharpen. Set your camera up properly and then you have minimum work.

I guess this will answer ---> www.alienginphotograph​y.com (external link)

But again it all depends on how and where the images are going to be used.

By the way, I do some extra pp on certain types of images. For example, things like this have been very popular among our players and fans:

Nothing real difficult - just playing with LR sliders, but they like the grunginess or edginess of the look.

My approach is similar to others, RAW into Lightroom for cropping, sharpening, straightening, along with a couple of presets all set to go for particular indoor venues or styles I'm looking for.
