The recording of the presentation from Dan Greenberg titled “Finding, Shooting, and Editing Car Photographs” given to the Focus Camera Club on September 13, 2023.
The presentation covers how Dan finds cars to photograph, how he photographs them and, mostly, how he edits them in Lightroom, Photoshop and Photomatix HDR using plugins and filters from Topaz, Nik/DxO and On One and with a wide variety of filters.
The techniques shown in the editing examples will be of value for all types of photography, not just automotive.
