So I was asked to do some shots for Triumph here in Oz for a Marketing Press Pack on the Street Triple.

I came up with these shots and learned I may need some new glass and to use a tripod.

Looooooovoe the set other than the rigged shot. Too much flare perhaps? Have any with the lights off?

Sorry PL!
I'll try it without lights at another time but with another bike. Possibly remove the fuses then as well as it was tough getting enough power from a speedlight to balance!

Thanks for commenting.

Nice composite!

I may need some new glass...

Why? A tripod & nice light will get the job done.

Great work putting everything together.

But...no matter how hard I try not to look, my eyes are instantly drawn to the highlights on the kickstand on the top/wide shot.

The color of the tank on the lower right shot gets a little funky.

Can't say the kickstand does for me. ;)

The tank does have a funky pearl to it. Triumph calls it Roulette Green.
It's got a gold like pearl through the paintwork that really comes out when out in the sun or when backlit like what I've done here.

How many flashes were you using? Looks like one camera far right, and one straight at the nose of the bike?
