Andre's one-of-a-kind custom

There's two kind of bikes which are difficult to photograph: black (with much chrome) bikes, and white ones. Because of the contrasts, colors easily blow out or become pitch dark (without details). Today I went to Andre, he made this white bike. Not off-white or something... No! Pure whiter than white white. By pointing some (softboxed) strobes at black parts like wheels and the engine, things came out really well! The location was awesome too!




























Some experiment: I've put an CTO-gelled flash-gun inside the tube, the bike is strobed too. Looks nice, doesn't it??
