behind the scenes...

Photo stolen from the RNO Cycles blog. It was quite difficult to light this white/black bike (much contrasts!) at night and burn-in the colourfull back-drop with long shutter-speeds... As I didn't want to blow out the whites, and didn't want hot-spots or ugly reflecting metals, I used two big soft-boxes (1,5 metre octabox front/side and a 1,5 metre square one from above, plus a little flasher to light up rims on the wheel) for flat and smooth light. The flashers were put on the lowest powerrrrr and then I altered the aperture till the whites didn't blow.
