Buddy Purugganan   First---use a real quality film and preferably use ISO 400 and a good flash with plenty of power. Taking photos of amazing bikes take research too. Read the latest from CYCLE WORLD, MOTORCYCLIST, ROAD BIKE and other motorcycle magazines where they show bikes of every kind photographed indoors or studios. You'll discover various nuances with their photos.And use a circular polarizer on occasion to avoid some reflections. Also bring a tripod if you think your hands have some problems keeping steady. Have fun....
