Something new for me, I normally shoot models but this was an awesome opportunity I had to shoot a friends Bike (Ducati 959).

thats a damn good looking image. would love to know how you shot that.


Merci beaucoup!!! Three light set up (Flashpoint Xplor 600). Light in the rear of the bike on the deck with red gel, strobe to the left rear ( for rim light on tire), and final light slightly to the right up high angled down. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, it just looks amazing, for me, this is the best shot for now on this contest. :)

This is a 5 IMO. Ducati could run this in their official marketing.

This is super clean. No crazy highlights and well balanced. Well done !

I agree with what has already been said, that red gel in the background was a nice touch. Beautiful image!

Great shot ! Lightning is perfectly on point and it's really clean. Love the background as well the red cuts the bike out and it gives a great mood. This could be a Ducati ad i agree ! The only small downside for me is the bike being on a stand. Congratulation !


Thank you. Yeah I see what you're saying about the stand, it does add a bit of distraction.

Didn't even notice the stand until it was mentioned. Amazing job done here!
Is it matte or glossy white? The lines on this bike are great, I would love to see how light painting would come out on a bike like this.
