Looks good man, although being its black bike.. I think you should have added a little more light.

I don't know jack shite about photography, but my friends that do it for a living say that black vehicles are the most difficult to photograph.

Same here, not bashing on the OP at all.. Just providing some feedback that I thought might be useful. I wouldn't doubt its very hard to get a black vehicle's picture just right.

thats a jardine yes? Great asthetic pipe. The two holes out the back instead of the two bros poo shooter.
Dianese sticker makes you think it's a ducati before looking twice, but goes well with the subframe.

+675 for the red subframe, sliders removed, solo tail and more light...

Less stickers and an Akrapovic would've been better, too :whistle:

But overall SWEET !

It's true. Black reflects EVERYTHING. You don't want reflections in the paint. You want clean highlights.

EDIT: Here's a very informative link about lighting vehicles from one of the most famous guys who used to be in the industry. I don't care for his removal of the backgrounds, but the guy knows his stuff. Helped me out a lot.

OP: Here's a tip that I've been meaning to try. Get a couple of white bedsheets and stretch them out above the bike. Light the sheets with a few lights to create one big softbox. If you place it above the bike, then you should get some nice highlights showing off the curves. That's basically how they do it for the studio shots.

Also, are you pointing the lights at the bike? It's much better for vehicle photography to light the ground and things around it. The reflections will show up in the paint to give it the definition you're looking for.

Nice pics! The red subframe bring out the other subtle reds like the Dainese and Jardine badges. The stock tail light pops out more with because of it too...to me at least.
