Lighting looks good, but the angles are killing me. Thanks for contributing!

This was shot with a single SB700 in a 43" Apollo Orb. 10 exposures combined in Photoshop.

This was my first time using the Lighten layer blend mode and it made life so much easier. In the past I had only masked layers manually. This shot took 1-2 hours in Photoshop vs the usual 5-6 hours!

Good job on this & the one in post #3366 a few weeks ago. But it shouldn't take 2-6 hours to mask those. Try this next time: Selecting areas in PS. ***UDATED***

Thanks for the link! It's hard to believe how much I've learned just by reading through this thread.

Thanks, it's a '78 XS650 Special that I restored in 2010. Lots of upgrades on it. It's a very fun bike to cruise around on.

Two light set up, mid day shoot - 3.5 @ 2500th using the ranger power

Lying in the puddle to get a reflection was fun

For the first time ever I remembered to take a setup shot!

3x Canon 600EX-RT, manual, full power. I didn't Photoshop the street light and bridge lights. We were waiting for them to come on, which they did by the time the pic was taken.

Terrific thread - the setup pictures are incredibly helpful.

Here's my first try using some of the techniques I read here. Keep 'em coming!

QUOTED IMAGE

Setup: 2x ProFoto B1 500 AirTTL, 1 w/Profoto Zoom (side), 1 w/Profoto Magnum (rear), TTL mode, Canon 5Dmk3, 24-105 lens.

QUOTED IMAGE

Great shots. Can't wait to see some strobist shots with the P1 and LaFerrari!
