My friends and i were bored so we decided to do a little fun shoot. C&C welcome!
shutter speed too fast on rolling shots. Also, try to get the entire car in the shots rather than clipping the front or the back.
"Im .. too sexy for my car ... to sexy for my ..." nah just kidding
I like #6. with a little tweeking would be nice. Slow down the shudder speed for the rolling shots like said above. When you have the chance to be in a rolling car as well you can get some nice exposures. Looked like you all had a good time.
ThaNks guys for the criticism. I'll take it all into consideration the next time I do a photoshoot. This was obviously my first time doing rolling shots. But I'll try to include the whole car next time. I'm working with a nikon d40 with the 18-55mm lense for now
Time to upgrade that bike playboy! Get a 600cc and see what a sportbike really acts like =P
(for those that will say 1000cc is what a real sportbike is...I've ridden many and they're barely any faster than a 600cc unless you're going 130mph+)
Also, and I'm prefacing this with I'm new to this, but learning quickly...the pictures look a bit tight, I would step back on 13 and 14, 13 you actually cut off the side of the guys right arm on the left and almost did so in 14.
It's his first bike and he likes to take things like that cautiously. Doesn't want to jump into anything like that yet.
But thanks I didn't even realize I cut off some of their arms in the pictures honestly
Definitely a good idea. I'd suggest everyone start on a smaller bike to get a better understanding on how they work. Bikes are much faster and more agile than cars and most people don't seem to understand the danger that poses when they pick them up. Couldn't tell you how many times I've watched people buy a 1000cc or 1300/1400cc bike brand new and drop it in the parking lot.
I've seen at least 5 people buy brand new Hayabusas (Suzuki GSX1300R) and either send them flying off the end of the parking lot or have it shoot out from beneath them and down onto the pavement. That's around $13k for a bike and a good $500-$1000 in damage in only a few seconds. That's assuming only the fairings were damaged.
Even worse? When people get on a high-powered sportbike for the first time and then *do* make it out of the parking lot. Something scary about people who don't know how to ride bikes going out into traffic and going 40mph+
The low end is a alot more powerful as well though. My R6 doesn't have nearly as much torque off the start as a 1000. I have to put a lot into it to get my front end up on my Yamaha R6, I can ride my friends Honda CBR929 and with the twitch of the wrist the front end can be straight up. (and yeah by the time someone hits 4th on a 1000, its all over)
First bike or not, I am sure he's already regretting not getting a bigger bike.
250cc=waste of money.
It's like the photography equivalent of Canons 28-90mm lens! lol
I've done it time and again...it is still a conscious thing that I have to ask myself before I snap "are all their limbs in the frame?"
