Some tips for photog'ing your bikes....
I see all these pictures of your guys bikes and I know we're not all seeing how great they really look. So I thought I'd try and offer up some basic pointers.
Composition - Get away from the bike. Don't be so close that parts of the bike are cropped out. Get far enough away so that there's some back ground.
Keep the bike either in the far left or far right of the frame. You can get away with having the bike smack in the middle of the frame but it's harder to pull off.
Lighting - Pay attention to what the sun is doing. Don't shoot in the middle of the day because the sun is harsh and unflattering. Best times to shoot are during sunrise and sunset. The light is softer then. For most situations, have the sun at your back or slightly off to the side.
having the sun facing you can work, but it's harder to pull off.
Subject - The wrong angle can make your bike go from sexy to meh. The best I can suggest for this one is find pictures of bikes you like and try to replicate them. Take your phone, your P&S or whatever, frame your bike and just walk around looking at the various angles.
For editing, I use paint.net which is free. You can do little things like adjust the contrast and saturation to really make your pics pop.
It might seem complicated and I apologize if that comes off as condescending, but it's not with a little practice.
I can set up my bike and snap off 50 pics in about 10 minutes. Out of that 50 I might have 10 that I actually like.
Anyway, hope this is helpful to someone!
