Surge of Energy

So I've been itching to shoot since I did my last set with Cecilia. Unfortunately its been nothing but rain since then and Im so done with those Cactus triggers. The good news though is that my new Alienbees CyberSync triggers will be here thursday!!! Once I get them I will really be able to get out and do more model type shooting. Holla at me me with some feedback!


So here I am sitting in the house bored day after day.. Cant take pictures.. Cant ride... So I decided to try my hand at this light painting business. Not as easy as it looks.. I found that it was much easier to do with a flashlight than with a strobe. It didnt turn out exactly the way I saw it in my head but this was the best of the bunch so I did a quick 10 minute run through photoshop to see if I could make this an image worth uploading. I guess I'll find out soon enough if I sucedded lol.


Strobist: 1 Flashlight, 60 second exposure.

    this is fantastic reggie. awesome "paint job". i would have liked a little more visibiity of the rear wheel but otherwise, this is a cracker.
  • Wayne Littlewood 6y

    A great capture, very creative, well done :)

  • Digi Den 6y

    Awesome capture and the detail is stunning it would of been so easy to over kill a shot like this with to many strobes. Really well done.

    Another bike fan! I seem to be making more bike friends on flickr somehow. LOL.

    At least now I know more about bikes enough to say, "Oooh, awesome ride." I love the lighting effect you added during the shooting, makes the blue really pop.
