This is the last of the pictures from my brief visit to the Republic of Texas Biker Rally last Friday and, once again, it’s an HDR detail shot of one of the bikes.
It’s interesting to note the difference in style between my images and those of the other guys I was with. For some reason, I took almost exclusively detail shots whereas everyone else was shooting wider (see Andy’s or Pete’s posts, for example). Part of that is probably because I had to leave before the parade and dusk when the best light for the wide shots could be found but I often find that things work this way – my shots concentrate on little pieces of a scene rather than the whole.
I wonder if this indicates that I’m concerned about interacting with people while shooting (you don’t typically have to ask permission to shoot wheels) or that I really find the simpler geometry in the details more appealing? I’m somewhat unsure of asking strangers for photographs but it’s not something that I am in abject horror of so I suspect the second explanation is closer to the truth.
