I hope this is the right forum for this. I was trying to think through this before I show up with the model and bike and be missing something.

I am thinking about a project where I have a model on a chopper, I know what an orignal idea, but let's get past that. While I have been warned that all the chrome will be a nightmare. I was thinking of a 7' softbox with maybe a high key softbox.

What do you think?

Thanks,

Corey

Just remember your angles of incidence - aim your lights in such ways that the lights don't bounce directly into the lens. Not necessarily a nightmare, but certainly something that will cause you to be very careful in setting things up.

If you do it at night and control the light to only hit the model...AND drag the shutter a bit to get the chopper to come out...I think it may work well.

And don't forget about all the reflections from anything laying around the studio
( if you wear a bright colored shirt , don't be suprised how many times you will see it in the chrome ! )
or red chair ....
or background paper in the corner ...

I had an 8 foot Octogon up high and to camera right (you can see the reflection on the tank)... a couple of strobes into the background... and another behind her to provide a bit of rimlight / separation.

Here's another one from the same session...

One of the keys is to get the light high and angled down to try and avoid to much reflection. Use reflectors etc for fill.



Good luck!
