Cycling Photography: Specialized Racing Bike Shoot

For this product photography class, Karl photographed a Specialized time-trial racing bike to demonstrate various lighting techniques that could be used when shooting complex products like this, where there are multiple different surfaces and small details that need to be shown.

You’ll see the complete lighting setup as Karl explains how he highlights each of the different parts of the bike, from the wheel frames to gears, logos, handlebars and even bottle holder. He also explains the concept for the shoot, his composition decisions and background choice.

NOTE: This class is due for release in September.
