20151030-Yamaha-Automn-Leaves-Header-001This is part 2 of the “Bikes in autumn foliage” series. Last week I featured a bike during daytime, this week’s post shows another bike at night.

This is my Yamaha FZ6 Fazer, on which I posted multiple times this year (e.g. Link1, Link2, Link3). As in the previous post the images were taken with a Nikon D750 and the 70-200 f2.8 VR lens. Post-processing in Lightroom involved only white balance correction, a tad saturation and a little vignetting here and there.

Pro tip: Turn off Auto White Balance (I did for the shoot, and by the way, it is mostly a good idea to use a fixed white balance during a shoot) ! You have absolutely no change in the light color in such a situation, only the street lamps illuminate the scene. With a fixed white balance in camera everything is right on the first take (or requires one click to one image and copy-paste the development settings to all other images). Do it, you’ll save heaps of time.
