Shooting a car show Sunday was a considerable change of pace for one who has spent years honing their photographic skills on wildlife. Exposure and post processing presented challenges considerable different from what I am familiar with. A huge flag was used as the backdrop for the outdoor studio; made even more appropriate with the event being held on the tenth anniversary of 9-11.
The flag was hung from a crane with the bottom corners held in place with weights. One problem we encountered was when the gentle afternoon breeze blew the 500lb corner weights around as if they weighed nothing. To eliminate the problem we attached a truck to the flag's center and tied off the weights to stationary objects.
Over fifty cars and bikes were entered into the event
Flags and Harley's go together like mom and apple pie; Photoshop's tools were just what I needed to make this biker's image complete.
