Ride the Dragon

  1. Well, I've been trying to get a decent shot of mxmark when he's on his way to work, but grrrr, I know I have some blown highlights on all that chrome, but otherwise, I think I did okay - still need more practice! Anyway, here's the Valkyrie!

    hi dianne-

    you can't prevent specular highlights on chrome if you're shooting in sunlight, just accept it :smile: you could always shoot on an overcast day for more even lighting, or try shooting close to or right after sunset.

  3. Thanks RIcky! I need tons more practice!

    LOL, nope! The Valkyrie mascot is a dragon. We plan on riding the Dragon Tail up in TN when we can coordinate grandma watching the 3 kiddos. You can count on me having a ton of photos when we make that trip!

  6. Thanks Gale! With not much time to get out because of rain - I'm shooting anything that moves! LOL!

    Thanks Paul! I know I need practice, need to have more time to set up my shots. I hope to get some photos of him on a stretch of road or something. Just gotta get better weather. Too much rain.
