Crystal asked me if I would photography her on a motorcycle so she could make a 20x30 poster and give it to her husband for their 3rd anniversary. We shot the two below in one hour in the service bay of a dealership. In the background were some red tool chests, hydraulic lifts and a half dozen "Hells Angels" looking mechanics with cellphone cameras. LOL

We wanted the background to fall off to black so the poster would look similar to the poster that Marissa Miller did for Harley Davidson. I positioned two Alien Bee strobes with 40-degree grids on each side of the bike and one Alien Bee with a 20-degree grid pointing at Crystal. The background fell off quite a bit, but it took Photoshop to completely blacken it.



For the shot below, Crystal wanted to show off more of the leather outfit the Harley dealership loaned her (and her well toned body)



Crystal gave the posters to her hubby at the HArley Dealership this evening, and I guess it was a complete success ... because 30 minutes later, he bought the brand new bike featured in the posters!

I'm hoping you made a little commission on the sale. :-)

Nice job.

Is this a large print or is it a poster like you would tack to the wall? If it is a poster, where did have one made? The images are fantastic. I especially like the second one. But then, your work is always very impressive.

The price to make this a 20"x30" print at the custom photolab I've used since the early 1980s was about $85 and it would take several days. That was too much, and took too long. Then my assistant told me about another place ... a local Walmart! We got several beautiful 20"x30" posters for $15 each (and all the posters were printed in under an hour).

The motto of this story: "Learning goes both ways." Just when I think I'm teaching him everything, he surprises me by showing me something new.

Excellent. I like this better than the Marisa Miller photo. I hope he bought her the leather vest with the V-Rod or the dealership could've at least thrown it in.
Nice job.
James

Cool! I had one of those till last year, tho I swapped the pipes out for some others. Very quick and agile bike! Now I'm on an HD Dyna Low Rider.
