Taken for the Active Assignment Weekly! group. This week's assignment: Environmental Portraits


Portrait of Junaid, a fellow Biker from my motorcycle touring group - RTMC ( He's into dirt-track racing and motorcycle touring. I wanted to capture his love for his Royal Enfield Lightening 535 Motorcycle and the highway ...and the free spirit of motorcycle touring.

Got up at 4:30 AM and rode about 65Kms outside the Bangalore city to the BMIC Highway linking Mysore Road to Kanakpura Road. Then made him pose with his Marlboros keeping the morning sky in the backdrop. Adjusted my strobe to the camera left and starting clicking :)
