    Willie- Maybe clone out that bit just right at the back (below-left of the seat)? Looks as if hanging hanging in space, becuase whatever it is attached to is obviously dark and blending in to the background.

    Great job shooting this miniature and making it look real. I wondered when you got your large studio for shooting things like bikes...

    Is it the foot peg for the passenger that you are referring to, Donald?

    That would be awesome. If I can do that in the future, I can easily buy my own bike then.

    Thanks, Paul. I did this shot to practice controlling how to handle the exposure when shooting red objects.

    Never having been on a motorbike in my life, I don't know what I'm talking about. But it's this.

    Re: Red Yamaha R-1.

    I thought about shooting mine this weekend. It may have to wait as I will be listening to a lecture by Art Wolfe amongst others. Mine is a little big for an inside shot under a 12" softbox though.

    Donald...that would be a blinker/turn signal.

    Re: Red Yamaha R-1.

    Ahhh... OK. I can't. That's the rear turning lights for this model. But I do understand your point. Any biker would easily pick that up as the turning signal light at the rear. I used to be a biker, too hence my affinity to racing bikes. Thanks, Donald.

    Awesome! Make it a 240" square softbox then so you'll get all those nice specular highlights! LOL! Should you go for it, a more practical way to mimic a very big lightsource is to bounce your lights at the ceiling. That would do the trick and still affordable. I just hope that your ceiling is white, though.

    That's a nice photo; I never had a motorbike but rode my friends bikes. Bet you will soon be the-expert in this kind of photography.

    You can easily build one using household stuff.
