Finally, we got there. This happened yesterday and I cannot wait to see the photos once David has worked his magic. I have zero photographic talent or vision, but this guy is a natural - self taught, but it's so obvious when working with him he knows what he is doing. I was the lighting assistant ;D He told me exactly where he wanted the light, what angle, what position, intensity etc, all to pick up the best shadows and highlights. He will use several exposures layered on top of one another to show all of the details in the best possible light - literally. The white paper on the ground is not used as a ground/background, rather to bounce light from the soft flash back up from underneath. The previews I got to see were very promising, chuffed.
Now this step is done, I'll be adding liquids and going for a test ride this week hopefully. Then starts the process of getting it road registered again. There are a few things I anticipate I will need to do to pass inspection. One, the tail light does not throw white light onto the license plate when on, so will need to either swap it out for the test or add some small license plate lights. Two, will need to add mirrors obviously - such a shame none suited the bike (I really did try). Three, it will probably, but not necessarily be too loud. In Sweden there is an age limit to bikes that allows some to have higher decibel outputs but I'll need to look into that.
