Canon T2i (550D) I have the 18-55 kit lens, 55-250 kit lens, 50mm f/1.8 and just got the 85mm f/1.8 which is my best lens so far. It's not an L lens but it's pretty awesome for a rookie like me.

Your equipment is more than sufficient. That 85mm 1.8 is my next lens(well, the Nikon version).

You don't need L series lenses. They are great, don't get me wrong, but with what you got now, you have much room for improvement.

There are many talented individuals that post in there. I wish I was even 10% as good as most of em.

I agree, but it's pretty amazing to see the difference from a kit lens to a lens thats just a few hundred dollars. I'm more worried about improving my skills and technique right now, then it's game on.

I really think I am trying way too hard to make this one work. If the car was in a different setting...the idea would have worked better than with the cars in the background...

A lot of work in Lightroom and Photoshop CS6

Just out of curiosity, what do you do to your photos in CS6 that you can't (or rather not do) in Lightroom? I'm trying to learn new editing techniques.

Let me start by saying that I RARELY do this much editing on a photo. I go out of my way during composition, exposure and setup to make sure that I have to edit the least amount possible because it is not my one of the things I do very well. 95% of my editing is done in Lightroom with a port to Photoshop when I need to remove or clone an element.

Here is the before and after.



First, I used Lightrooom to get the colors and exposure on the car how I wanted them. As you can tell by the original out of the camera, doing that completely blows out the sky even more than it already is.

I then brought the image into Photoshop to remove the green flares and the man's head to the left.

Then...I went back into Lightroom, created a duplicate and exposed for the sky only. When I did this...you could barely see the car but the clouds started to come out. I increased clarity and made sure they were really visible.

I then took that image and brought it into the image I already had open in Photoshop as a layer. I then took the first image and spliced it up into three segments...the car and foreground, the trees and the sky. I deleted the sky in the 1st picture to bring out the sky that I had properly exposed for. I then made a couple of level changes, flattened the image and brought it back into Lightroom for some final touches in color, shadows, sharpness and clarity.

The main issue with this shot is that it isn't very good. The crap in, crap out theory really holds and even all of the editing in the world doesn't help the fact that it is cluttered around the car and the wheels are cut off. There really aren't many things you can do at a car show to fix that. I used it as an exercise to try to get better at editing photos.

^^ WOW, that is crazy! I need to learn the whole Photo editing stuff. Incredible what you can do with a below average photo, and post processing.

You definitely get waaaaay more involved than I do. I just started messing with clarity and contrast. I'm taking baby steps. I really wish you could layer in Lightroom, that would make a huge difference.

I only really scratch the surface. Photoshop is incredibly powerful. That is also why most people don't really need it. Lightroom does a lot.

Yeah I don't think I'm going to get too involved in it any time soon. I'm pretty happy with Lightroom at this point.

i outgrew lightroom pretty fast, but CS5 is mind boggling, but is perfect what i need, i dont over edit at all, at most have 3-4 layers...i can get CS6 whenever i want, but im finally starting to get used to CS5 so il stick to that a lil while longer

Here is my final edit ( I think ) that I've been working on for a while. All done in Lightroom4. Obviously nothing crazy was done except cropping, cloning and color adjusting but I think it came out well.

My first published photo..

Canon RebelXT, Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS, Cracked B+W CPL. Processed in Photoshop CS5, was done in a rush at a Starbucks sitting next to the front windows, hence the oversaturation.

No idea. I had never panned before that weekend, either.

The RAW files are on my old laptop with a busted screen. Ironically, that shot is one of the very few I dont have triple redundancy of.
