I never did share the session of Chuck, a biker that we know from the Harley dealership in Frederick, MD. Chuck's bike (The Black Pearl) is a thing of art and beauty and he was kind enough to sit still long enough to let us photograph him.
I say US because I did a session WITH my husband (who is doing his own thing, with motorcycle photography...) I'll say it's much harder to photograph a bike than a baby.
But I gave it my best effort.
Things I learned:
*Bikers may look all rough and gruff, but they are kind and thoughtful people, just like you and me.
*People often put a HUGE amount of money, blood, sweat and tears into their bikes. And they're VERY proud of them.
*I could never get a tattoo. I am a complete wimp....
*I have a LOT to learn about motorcycle photography....A LOT.
Tomorrow, I am shooting Jim's pictures. Another biker. He looks like he just left ZZ Top on the Road. But he's sweet and he has a nice smile, so I know he'll give me good pictures.
Am I leaving babies behind for bikers? NOPE. But I have to branch out of my immediate comfort zone and do things differently every once in a while....
