Part 2 of the Aprilia Caponord shooting (part 1 here). After shooting on the open road, we moved to a nearby agricultural dock and positioned the bike in front of a huge metal roller door. The background is ideal. It is free of distractions, yet provides some structure due to the rounded blades the door is constructed of.

The shooting setup is simple. Two flashes, placed left and right to the bike, camera and flashes in TTL mode and fire away.

As you can see the procedure was quite simple. Take a few images, then rotate the bike a little. We worked our way around the bike employing that method quickly – perhaps 30-40 minutes and everything was done.

I like these on-location shootings, because in contrast to the studio shootings only minimal post processing is involved. In this case only a few things were done:

  • colour correction
  • darkening the visor to black (he had a darkened visor but due to the flash his face was visible)
  • cloning away a small label on the door in the background.
