Totally agree with what Conrad has laid out here. Having grown up with a father who was a photographer I got to learning these things at a pretty early age.

I love a good background... even if it's blurred out a little. I like shooting with a zoom lens and getting back about 30-40 feet from the bike.







Also... when shooting up close... pick a specific spot on the bike and leave some to the imagination.

Zoom in, set AP and open the aperture right up

I like your pics Power Groove even though they are a little over edited.

I'm looking forward to a day out with the camera. My trips out have usually been to the airport..

I just need to find the right location. I'd like to find a good spot at Jodrell Bank. I pass it daily on the way to work.

I like take photos in the sunset too. If you get the sunlight just barely in the frame you get a nice summer look. Too bad that time window is so limited.

Yeah... Some of them I edit but many I just adjust contrast or color. I did get up on Kawasaki's Tumblr and Facebook page though as "fan submission of the week" with a couple of those.
