Motorcyles on the Beach

This week it was off to the beach for to photography a motorcycle. Shooting a motorcycle at a beach is very difficult. The biggest challenge is the motorcycle will sink into the beach.

On a sandy beach I would bury a layer or two of plywood just below the surface of the sand and then smooth it out after placing the bike. In this case the beach had a hard area that was not sandy at all. Being hard and dry the bike could stand on its own.

I was pretty happy with the end result. When things were set and I liked where the sun was, creating a good shadow. Adding in some additional light to fill in the rest of the shot and it came together as I had imagined.
