As a professional photographer working in Merseyside and around the North of England I shoot many different types of products and services for business. I enjoy it not matter what the business is, but when you are asked to to a photography commission for something else that you are passionate about then it can be something really special.
I did this photo shoot of an old Triumph motorbike which has some parts upgraded, you can see the modern suspension and the wheels. It is a cool looking bike. I have shot these bikes in a photography studio environment. I used lots of studio flashes to get a even lighting on the background I didn’t use any softboxes, I wanted some lights to be a fake sunlight and the other lights are used to fill in deep shadow areas on the bike itself so the detail in the engine can be seen, I have back lit the bike slightly to create strong shadows in the foreground.
Once the shoot was finished and when I had processed the images I got to work in Photoshop, I changed the colour of the background as I shoot the bike on white. I changed it to a colour that would match the colours on the paintwork of the bike which helps to asethetics of the photograph. Its complimentary and helps to join subject and background together to work in a harmony. I gives the photograph balance, I think the other reason why it works so well is the composition, the position of the bike in the frame. Its all aspects of the design that goes into an image when it is being created. There are so many variants but with experience and control they all come together and make for premium photography.
