Learning to use Adobe Lightroom (E93 Content)

So I took a few shots of my car under a highway here in Brooklyn. Figured why not try and learn Adobe Lightroom using these shots. Here's the result.





Will upload more pics as I finish them

If anyone knows of any good tutorials for touching up car pics let me know

Best way to learn is to just to keep playing with things in my opinion.

I like the first shot a lot.

Thank you! So far I have the 220M wheels on there, Alpina B3 flash, and muffler delete. I just recently took off my BMS catless downpipe, it was way too loud with muffler delete lol. Ordering Eibach springs today

Very true. I've been messing around for a few days now and definitely starting to see some improvement in the photos.

Nice pics. Lightroom is really awesome love how it has a library and you can put the two pics side by side. Most editing software is learn on your own but tutorials help speed up the process.

First picture is really nice! I like the way the light comes on in the right side.
I would have cleaned up some of the garbage in the background using the clone tool to make the picture look a little bit cleaner.

Nice location you found there!

Thanks! I actually did clean up a good amount of the garbage, just wanted to leave some for the industrial kind of look. But now that I think of it, cleaning up all of it might be better.

Nice pics. I have the same front bumper, how did you black out the fins? I'm considering doing that as well.

I plastidipped them in black and then used some glossifier as well. Very happy with the result, and definitely looks way better.
