Baroness' BSA

Chase the lightning! Artist Antoine Stemerding made this super nice rigid BSA old skool chopper. We shot it indoors and it came out pretty awesome!

It was a low-light situation and so I used 4 speedlights to light up the whole bike: one with umbrella in front, 2 with a little softbox at both sides (rims) and one bare flasher to aim at under-exposed details.














A try out of a cool little trick I read about in one of the strobist books on my book-shelve (it was a long winter again). CTO-gelled all the four speedlights (orange) and then adapted the white balance on the camera. So, the bike keeps its colour, but the background turns... blue! Gettit? At the spot I wasn't sure if I liked it, but it came out the camera really cool!!













Thanks for the nice day Antoine!!
