Not my bike -- there's only 50 of these puppies, so hunt down your local Look dealer if you want yours.

I don't even have my Look 585 assembled and I'm already taking photos of other bikes to make it jealous. I was a bit of a Mondrian nerd in college, so the idea of a Mondrian-inspired, limited edition, bike of awesomeness appeals to me. The top photo is my favorite because, for me, it evokes Mondrian's "Lozenge" compositions. I would have attempted to steal the Look 586, but the S-sized frame would have been a bit clown-ish for my 6'2" frame.

I should note that I'm terrible at studio shots -- my prior studio lighting experience was two headshots and never anything with bikes. Bikes are more well-behaved subjects, but I had not anticipated the difficulty of photographing spokes on a black backdrop: the 586 appears to be riding on a magical spoke-less Carbones. While the black works for the closeups, a white backdrop is definitely the way to go for a profile shot.

At bike shows I see all the pros have assistants carrying reflectors, with and without backdrops. I have no clue how to place those reflectors, though.

I抦 not that much of a online reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up!
I'll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later on. Many thanks
