Last week, I photographed Jesse’s motorcycle, a Pagsta. This is one of the smallest road bikes I think I’ve ever seen. It’s got a 97 cm^3 engine, and I think he said it will do about 45 mph, tops. He uses it to get around town, back an forth to work each day. I found it to be an interesting challenge, in that the location to shoot it was at a school, not the open road. Also, I had three hours. As photographers, though, we have to get the shot. Ready, go!
More, after the jump.
I began by setting up a white area for all the chrome to reflect. I also brought a white/black reflector for some of the detail shots.
In the end, I ended up making this into a poster for him, and I wish you could have seen the smile on his face when he saw it.
