I use Lightroom for processing 100% of my RAW images. Only a small number require further tweaking in Photoshop. Lightroom is fast, robust and easy to use. The ability to recover blown highlights or underexposed shadows can be a true lifesaver. And all the edits are non-destructive which means you can easily make additional changes later on. I highly recommend this tool for making your images reach their full potential with minimal time spent at the computer.
Photoshop is an awesome tool to manipulate and improve photos. In portraits, you can enhance eyes, skin, hair, teeth, even slim down waistlines and other body parts. It's easy to move people and objects within an image or even to another image altogether. Adding text and borders in creative ways is no problem. This program offers an incredible amount of creative potential!
One company I work for involves taking school portraits at grade schools, junior highs and high schools. This involves setting up and metering the lighting and posing the subjects for formal portraits.
I also photograph high school sports and activities about 2-3 times a week. Sports include all high school games such as football, soccer, gymnastics, basketball, baseball, tennis, bowling, cross country, badminton, etc. And I photograph school plays, concerts, groups, assemblies, etc. I'm well versed in understanding appropriate equipment and settings for such events in many varied venues.
For a second company, I photograph graduation ceremonies at the high school and college level. I also photograph marathons, senior portraits, First Communions and youth sporting events. In my various jobs, I utilize Canon and Nikon equipment extensively as well as some gear from other manufacturers.
I love creating DVD slide shows and custom photo books of my images for my clients. I'm proficient in Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, ProShow Gold, FotoFusion and Picasa.
