The first would be better if it didn't have that window or whatever in the upper right.
You need more fill light it seems for most of the shots.
I don't like the composure from that height. It's my opinion, motorcycles and cars should be done from a foor ot two from the ground. Waist level at most.
I do like the last shot though. I just wish I could see some more of the bike with more lighting on it.
i can't even see dem cruiser bikes
Yea, i thought i would like that wall at first, but the opening was a pain, so i moved away in some of the later shots. All light was from 2 stobes, but they were bounced to create a softer low light effect. I like it, but i can see why others may not. I too like the low level shots and have the same opinion, but i wanted to try a few new shots like the over the tank one.
Next time perhaps try using the strobed shot through white umbrellas. You can control the distance and power levels on each to achieve good lighting results. I find bouncing light in areas without white ceilings, or walls is very difficult and light is absorbed.
So maybe try that next time. I know you can get some cheapo umbrellas and stands on ebay. That's what i used for this shot.
Some of the light on the front is a bit harsh, but I was very pleased.
The basic setup (before I corrected myself and used stands and umbrellas.)
This shot was taken before I used the other umbrella on the left.
Your angle on the top couple was too high IMO, would have looked better if you got down for the shot.
Nice, I think EV is a little low?
Thanks. Yea, i noticed that the walls were starting to cause an issue. i was hoping that they would absorb more of the light, but they didnt. I ended up using som home made bounce cards to deflect off onto the bike and get some minor bounce off of the upper concrete structure. I really need to get some umbrellas. yours look good. How much was that setup and which one was it off of ebay? Right now im looking for cheap.
BTW your shot looks nice and crisp...kudos.
I would have to agree with you. Im liking the angle more and more of the last one with my buddy on the bike. Maybe ill do a reshoot here in teh future and try to get it all right.
The kit I got on ebay was less than $100
pics are good, i dont like cruisers at all, i like the triumph speed tripple though?
Linkey of one similar?
This is a bit different, but it includes a black muslin and stands for it. nott oo shabby for starters
nice, but i dont have room for a muslin right now...only umbrellas.
