Rocket for Sale

A good friend of mine was put in the unfortunate position of having to sell his recently purchased street bike. He asked if I would take some photos for the ad and to have as keep sakes. I of course said yes never wanting to miss an opportunity to shoot new and interesting subjects.

I had a rough idea of what I wanted to accomplished but no time to scout a location. I came up with a couple possible spots on the way over to his place and after checking the position of the sun upon arriving I cut it down to one location that might work.

Although I didn’t quite get the shots I was after due to the angle of the sun and the hills in the background I was able to improvise with the help of a reflector held by the owner to obtain the first first two shots.

The next two sets were snagged with the use of two Canon 430EX flashes on either side of the road triggered by some inexpensive but quite reliable flash triggers.
