Studio Motorcycle Photography — Karl Taylor — Free download
When it comes to automotive photography, motorbikes can often be more difficult subjects than cars because of the angular surfaces and mixture of surfaces.
Learn how to take professional motorcycle photographs as Karl demonstrates the start to finish shoot of a black Honda Fireblade CBR. Throughout this class, you’ll learn about the best lighting for this type of photography, including gradient lighting for gloss surfaces and rim lighting to separate the subject and background; what camera settings and lenses to use; how to angle the bike and compose the shot; how to determine your camera angle; and how to use long exposures to capture the headlights.
Working through this demonstration, Karl offers numerous tips for motorbike photography, and you’ll soon see how these techniques can also be applied to other subjects too.
