A Cycle That'll Knock Your Socks Off
A Cycle That'll Knock Your Socks Off
A photographer stands in a professionally lighted studio to photograph a motorcycle at an Adobe Photowalk Meetup hosted by Adobe and Lynda.com in Carpinteria, California. Photographers were able to photograph a Mercedes, a BMW, and this motorcycle, and got a sneak peek at Adobe CS6. The perspective makes it look like the motorcycle is bigger than the man, but that's not the case.

    Wow what a fantastic opportunity and a beautiful bike. Great comp, lighting, colours, pov and details. Superb shot Patricia!

Just as a rider myself and enthusiast do you know what bike this is? or the other 2 as well? Great work!

Hi Hayden, thank you very much! Yes, it was a great opportunity and a wonderful day, all for free. The Mercedes and BMW were automobiles, not motorcycles. This motorcycle is an Aprilia RSV. I hadn't heard of this brand before, but I'm no expert on motorcycles. :-) Thanks again!

Thank you for the information and model for the bike, I presumed the other 2 were cars as Mercedes don't make motorcycles to my knowledge. However BMW does, and Aprilia is an Italian motorcycle company that make fantastic exotic bikes and here is one of them :). Again superbly captured!

See, it proves I know very little about motorcycles. :-). Thank you, Hayden, for this interesting information about the Aprilia.
