Evolution's 1940 WL Harley Davidson - 2

We're proud to bring you a selection of six images from one of our favourite photo shoots of 2012 so far: Evolution's 1940 WL Harley Davidson, as featured in the upcoming issue 15 of Australia's Best Choppers (formerly Wild Aussie Choppers). It was actually our first shoot of 2012 and despite feeling we may have been a little rusty after more than a month on hiatus, we were pleased with the results and glad of proprietor Paul McKinnon's patience in letting us experiment a little.


Paul's 1940 WL Harley Davidson-powered retro bobber has been receiving a lot of media attention since he finished it last year, thanks surely to some of the custom touches lavished on it, like the Evolution-designed billet front end and Subaru supercharger that's pumping about 6psi into the old Vtwin. You'll be able to rear all about the bike in issue 15, in sale soon.


The entire shoot was completed using our regular arsenal of Speedlite flashes and strobist fans can find all the lighting info on our Flickr page, as well as EXIF data. Plus, as always, we've uploaded each of the six images as FREE desktop wallpaper images, ready to fill your 1680-resolution monitors. Enjoy!


Strobist: two 430EXIIs through white umbrellas with one to camera left and one to the right. Another bare 580EXII adding that rim light to camera right. All on full power and triggered by Cactus V4s.
