Got a friend of mine to get his bike with mine to give this technique a shot.

And together now!

All-in-all I was pretty happy with the results. It got a little chilly and my pregnant wife and young daughter was with us so I cut it short.

C/C welcome and thanks for looking.

Oo, nice shots! Just wondering what kind of light you used? I've tried painting people but it's always unsuccessful (LED Maglite)

love the first pic, really nice. The gixxer is blown out a bit in the last 2 pictures, but otherwise could have been awesome shots as well

That was a little harder to paint; because I was in complete darkness I really wasn't sure when enough was enough. I'll try and fix that.

I started with about 90 sec. exposure @ f/16.

I have a generic spotlight I bought at WalMart. All you need is one pass on everything with it. I did my truck about a year ago with it and they came out pretty good. I was toying with popping the flash in different locations during a 30 second exposure and on a whim I used the spot light I was carrying to try some light painting. :D

I like 2 & 3. I think you lit up too much ground in #1.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

When I was as at Lowe's they had a 249 Lumen spotlight for $5 cheaper but I wasn't sure if that was going to be overkill for the bikes.

The first one looks pretty good. See the links in my Sig, and...

Here is one that I am using for my class. The class isn't even lighting related but I just had to try this technique with it. The professor is constantely reminding us everything we turn in should be "portfolio quality" and that is what I was definitely striving for on this one. The first three shots were for fun but this one is the one I was trying to get the whole time.

That looks OK except for the dark area just ahead of the seat. Try the same location just after the sun sets behind you & see which treatment you like better.

I didn't know of that would be that big of an issue but I'm glad it was pointed out.

I have a 370Z lined up in the next couple of weeks for a location shoot so I'm really stoked about that.
