Ok … admittedly, camera set at waaaay too slow ISO or f.stop to aviod camera shake or fuzz, but I still like the ‘arty-ness’ of this image enough to upload it, despite it’s seriously obvious faults!!!!

Gathering of pre-ride cyclists, caffeine consumed (or not) waiting for ‘group-members’ to turn up (or not) before setting off down a still dark “Beach Road” for the ‘weekend warrior’ Saturday ride …

Pre 7am, “Cafe Racer” StKilda, Melbourne

Canon 50D, 55-200
natural available light (virtually NIL!!)
No flash (Hate using flash!!) absolutely no post-ed!

Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))

    Yep, that’s how I see things pre 7am, if at all! They’re like birds, gathering at the start of the day before they set out in a flock. I like!

  • Thank you very much Georgie :-)
    Heeheee, yeah I’m a bit fuzzy too at 7am, haven’t had such an early start like this in aaaaages! Used to be up and at ’em by 5am regularly, to get training done before work … just like this noisy bunch!! ;-)

    It’s a bit like the difference between burnt and caramelized, one is deliberate the other accidental. This is definitely a caramelized image. I like it too!

  • Ahhh thank you!! and what a great analogy my friend! :-D
    Was waiting for my coffee to arrive and this group had their backs to me getting ready to go – the multitude of blinking tail lights in the dark looked quite speccy so whipped out the Canon without checking settings first … as you do, when you’ve got to be quick before the ‘moment’ is gone ;-)

    It’s all in the presentation my friend, and having the confidence to do what you feel is right. Great stuff

  • Gary thank you :-) … you are great for my confidence :-)

    this really does look cool!

  • Heehee, thank you J, was just a bit of fun, actually didn’t expect the image to get any comments at all, due to being deemed too fuzzy … just never can tell though :-)

    I think it is a brilliant capture of the moment, it creates a sense of gathering and frenzy that would not have worked on a still photographed. Well done!
