most of the time, I find it pretty easy to come up with an idea for my weekly picture. That doesn’t mean, that these ideas appear out of nowhere. Usually, I have a rough idea, which is not ready to be played out at first. But I’ve got this thing which I call my “creativity list” where I write down everything which I think could turn into a nice picture. And then sometimes, a sudden flash of inspiration occurs and the picture takes shape. That is the time, when I start seriously think about the implementation of the picture, like how should the general look of the picture be like, what lighting do I want to use, what colors do I want to use and so on. Of course, when it comes to editing, some of these ideas will be discarded or changed. But nonetheless, I find it very helpful to have a rough idea what I want to do, before I start shooting. This week was a week without even a trace of creativity. Even though my motivation was peaking, I just could not come up with any idea. So I just decided pretty shortterm to head out with my buddy Felix who is an awesome biker, to make some nice bike pictures. Just as we arrived on location, it began to rain. Not the perfect conditions for bike pics, but it takes more than a little rain to stop us.
Shooting this was pretty easy. As Felix is able to drive while making a wheelie for quite some time, I had plenty of time to make the pics. I just used one flash mounted on the cam for this.
So long – Florian
