Shots look good! As soon as I get my new brakes in I'll have to shoot my SLR01 too
Thanks I'll look for yours!
I've done my fair share of photography and feel like the bike would look much nicer if shot with some even lighting without the hard light and shadows.
He is a coworker, I didnt want to impose upon him and make him do a studio session. We were at the mercy of the CO sun.
Also, if you're friend is cool enough to shoot this for you I say go all out and set up the bike properly! Big ring / small cog, crank arms in line with chain stays etc.
Isn't the whole crank inline with chain stay personal preference?
If he gives some distance between the bike and background itself he will be able to create a nice burred background.
He realizes this and we have another session planned at another location to adress this.
Also, looks like a tiny part of the 0 in SLR01 is missing at the bottom
Not sure if it has chipped or your friend was a bit trigger happy when retouching.
I actually received the bike like this. I chose to not fuss about it because I plan to repaint it later.
