Thanks for the motivating words guys! It's always nice to see the car owners positive feedback when they get to see their usual daily driver in a different light.

I'm also posting these for constructive criticism. I've only been doing this for 3 weeks (editing and car photography). So I know there's a lot I'm probably doing wrong.

Any seasoned car photographer have any pointers pre/post shot edits? Composition? Lighting? Angles I should open up to more? Too much backdrop clutter? Etc.

Thanks!!!!

Haha it's funny you pointed that out. 99.9% of the time I always go down the clarity, clean sharp look., until I accidentally added too much yellow hue and sat back and thought., this "may" work. But I agree. I like it more than that "hipster" feel. Maybe it would work w a different car, like a vintage

Hey,
amazing pictures...wow. Do you mind sharing how you made them come out so crisp and ultra clear...I have a D7000 and mine look good but not nearly as crisp. Or did you post process them?
Thanks for the small tip/info...appreciate it.

How's it going! i'm still very new to shooting and editing, BUT what I have discovered is anything above an iso 400, starts to get grainy. especially when you zoom up in your editing software to take a close look at the paint job on the cars. i post process and pull the grain out to smooth out the paint grains, and boost up clarity as my main starting points. from there it really depends on the picture, the composition, the angle of the car, and the backdrop that determines how i mess with the coloring, vibrance, shadows, whites, etc. hope this helps!!

you can always send me a picture to jonathanmeas@gmail.com

i'd be happy to do some quick edits and let you know what settings i put so you can use it either as a baseline or a comparison to what you may do with it. the thing i love about editing so far is 1 picture can go a million different routes and give you a million different feelings.

Thanks bro! yea, it's nothing flashy or clean, just pulled the car out from the fog a bit and pushed the fog back off. in the unedited picture my car could barely be seen with the huge amount of fog between the camera, myself and the car.

thanks. i didn't want to spam the photo thread and piss people off. but rather keep a collection for myself and others to see the progress of me learning this very technical craft. its nice that the photos show up newest to oldest on here. and with that, i hope the pictures go from nicer to uglier in that order. lol
