Last night I wrapped up edits on a shoot I did at the Larry Miller Motorsports Park with BMW Motorcycles of Sandy, Utah. A few days prior to the shoot, I picked up a Cokin filter system and put it to good use right away. I was impressed with the new range of options open to me for portrait work. It was nice, for example to be able to shoot full sunlight without worrying how I’d balance the exposure between the sky and my subjects. Between the flashes, the graduated filter on my 18-200mm lens and talented models, there were plenty of great images to work with when I got home.
With four models and two other photographers, the pace of this one was pretty frantic. We didn’t have much time—just a couple of hours—and we were only allowed on the track for about fifteen minutes after each run. It was a challenge to get a well-lit shot without someone else winding up in the background. Case in point: there was another motorcycle and rider in this shot before I started edits. (I love you, Photoshop). :)
