Picture Thread

Hey guys, I decided to start a picture thread of photos I take and any of yours. I am still learning and improving slowly with every time I attempt at it, but here is what I got so far. I would be more than happy to attempt at shooting one of your bikes if you would like, free of charge. I just would love to get more pictures of different bikes and just to meet you guys in person.

I also got two pictures of liltribute's bike. They arn't that great because we didn't go out anywhere just in front of his house, but hopefully soon we can get something more sexy of his "boner" bike =)

i love pics of traffic lights like then when you leave the shutter open for a few seconds. works wonders for firework pics too.
we should both take pics and edit them. what software do you use?

Hey Steve, That sounds like a plan man. That photo I actually photoshoped lol. The bike was in the back of my subdivision, then I googled New York images and found that shot lol.

I actually use several programs. First I combine the HDR inside of Photoshop CS3 extended, then I throw the hdr into Dynamic-Photo HDR and do all the hdr stuff in there. Then I throw it back into photoshop and do any final touches, color modifications etc.

Yeah the shutter is a badass thing to play around with.

Do you know of any nice shots? I like the idea of night shots more than day, but the trick is to get some beautiful light play going on?
Let me know if you want to go out sometime, I cannot really do anything during weekends due to my wife wanting to spend quality time, but during weekdays any day/anytime goes. I am self employed so I can move my schedule around very fast.

I use a Canon EOS Rebel XT. My camera is a tad old, but it does the trick. I had issues with noise when I would do 3 shots for HDR, but I noticed if I do like 8 shots, its perfect lol. Yourself?

Wow, your camera is amazing on action shots, I really like the movements. Also like that blue helmet part
Your focus on the camera is also a lot better than on mine lol. Nice pix amigo

Your bike is beautiful also, btw, on those firework shots. Did you just take a picture with the shutter open and while its taking thats when the firework flew up and blew? Because it seems like you captured the whole process lol.

Also question, on the bike shot, how did you photoshop out the background so clean? Is there a trick to doing it or did you go by hand and select the bike only?

ya on a tripod, shutter speed was about 2.5 seconds i think, and i just snapped it right before the firework went off, so basically yeah it got the whole blooming process.

thanks btw.
i have lots of actions shots that could prolly be made into one long sequence lol
action is my fav. thing to shoot.

What would be cool is to grab like 10 shots of a bike going around a cornor, and assembling them as if its a animation only in one image.

Here is an example.

Ooo you are going to that? Definitely take a lotta pictures and post them here, I would love to see how they turn out. By the way, have you ever tried to take hdr photos involving people? The outcome is awesome but the concept of not moving really makes things tricky

Zed the 2nd pic of the red gsxr is lovely man! I did notice however you like to cut out the front tire on your pictures lol. Is that just one of my style marks? Also, how the hell did you manage to get such soft shadows on a sunny day like that? :/

Ohh, and Zed, You have one badass camera my friend!

LOL...yes...it could be part of my style. If i shot the way everyone else shoots I could not make a living at this. Its about the artist eye. 3 of us could shoot the same subject and come up with 3 completely different takes on the subject.

here a Different take on the same bike(after paint)

and another bike shot the same day

I would like to get together with you guys and bounce some ideas around. Let me know when you both are free and I can open up some time.

[QUOTE=RedStar;138051] Also, how the hell did you manage to get such soft shadows on a sunny day like that? :/QUOTE]

magic hour my friend. 1 Hour before sunset or 1 hour after sunrise. Anthing else and you are wasting time. Shooting digital is like shooting slide film, the exp latitude is very small. in bright sunlight you blow highlights so i wait for the right light to shoot

My motorcycle stuff can be seen here on my website: http://murdercycle.zenfolio.com/

Right now I am working on perfecting a technique taught by Zach Arias called one light. Really nice stuff. since you are into HDR check out Calvin hollywood.
http://www.calvinhollywood-blog.com/ ( he does the HDR to people thing alot)

Wow, that guy is amazing with his photos. Do you know if he takes several shots with different shutter speeds of people? I ask because That would be a pain in the ass for them to stay in one stop lol.
Ohh and yeah, I remember people telling me about the magic hour stuff, where the shadows are soft. I guess its just your shutter that made the day a lot brighter

Turbolq4 - Yeah he is here man, he is Poltart.

Actually I think I shot that with a 1.7 50mm, and fill flashed, so that also softened them somewhat.

I can show you guys that area...actually a nice local curvy road to run without leaving Boise. Prob not cleaned after the winter yet so definately sketchy
