In my continuing planning for a possible motorcycle shoot, I have found a few images that I would like to try to reproduce. The following link is from Yamaha's Star Motorcycles web site.

This picture is from the following page:

There are lots of shots, many of them done at sundown with extra light, which I won't be able to do. I chose one that the bike was lit mostly with a strobe.

I was wondering how big of a panel/box you think this might be? Do you think these bikes were lit with just one panel/box? (aside from the sun light in those picture that have sun light)

I was thinking of building a large panel/box and build a big boom. (I have some steel already for the boom), and/or a large panel to stand upright like a wall of llight (something on the order of 10 foot by 15 foot). I know reflections of the bike are going to be the big issue.

The end product would be similar in idea like the image on the front page (link below) with the bike owner being lit seperately. Bike owner might be positioned differently with the bike taking up more space.

What do you guys think?

Chris doesn't use boxes for his bike shoots because they're too limiting. He uses a large silk and multiple lights, I think it's about 10'x20'. Look at the catchlights.

In your question about the bikes if you want to keep the reflections down to a min or not at all. Think about on of the laws of light. Angle of Incidence equals angle of reflectance. If you truely think about this you will be able to position your lights so you don't get the reflections. You can see what I mean by looking at my watch shot here: http://www.modelmayhem.com/pics.php?id=103415
