I have access to some nice cameras and some nice bikes. The only problem is the only photographer I have regular access to (me) completely sucks at taking pictures of bikes.
I struggle with the lighting -- my little compact digital cameras never seem to get the lighting/details right, so I guess I need to drag out the digital slr and actually read the manual or something.
Or, I could get expert advice from total strangers on the web.
- indoors vs. outdoors?
- f-stop, shutter speed ?
I finally finished a couple of restoration projects and before I unleash the results on you I want photos that the bikes deserve.
I know that some of you are very good at this....
(EDIT: I don't mean to sound so helpless; I have tried to figure this out but am not happy with what I've been doing....I've had my cameras on auto / program and not been happy with results; I need to dig in and sort out what I'm doing wrong. Part of my problem is getting details to show up when the details are sometimes shiny and the details wash out if I have too much light).
