p.1 #1 · Advice on biker chick(s) shot


I tried this on the lighting forum but got no responses. So I will try it here.
I have a woman friend who rides a Harley. She and 7 of her girlfriends (also Harley riders) want individual shots and a group photo. I have access to a warehouse-type area and plan on wetting down the pavement, bringing a few cars and using their headlights for backlighting. I can also bring a few Dynatrons with umbrellas and my SB600 speedlight.

I will try to shoot this in the late afternoon-early evening and am going for a gritty look. I will bring a stepladder and plan to have the girls set up in a diamond pattern. My goal is to shoot around 5.6 or smaller to get some decent depth of field. Am I missing anything and does anyone have any suggestions for this type of shoot? Thanks for any comments.

Richard

Use a tripod light each one seperately take individual shots then combine them in Photoshop...

This would be my advice as well. I imagine it would be hard to evenly light so many people/bikes evenly any other way.
