Well well time for another little tutorial/guide on light setups. I did this shot on a night out with local photography club. One of the members brought a motorcycle to the parking lot. The light in the background is the standard in the parking lot and I liked the lines so I used them in the picture.
Well no more talking here we go with the picture.
I agree not the best drawing of a motorcycle in the world but I think you get the idea. I used one Elinchrome octa over the model. The light wrap from this is so good that there is no other light source on the model and motorcycle. The only other light is the stripes in the background.
So as you can see here we are talking about a one light setup. Sometimes you don’t need loads of light and huge complicated setups.
Settings for the shot: 1/80 sec. – F8 – iso200
I used the Canon EOS 5D Mark II with the Canon EF 70-200L F2.8 IS @ 105mm
If you have any questions feel free to drop me a comment.
Well there is also a lot of light bouncing back as fill from the white tank. Nice image I like it. Take a look at my page for the self portrait motorcycle shot I did.
