Pics from BikeNight @ Zorba's in Riverside, CA

It was a pretty big turnout. Lots of people with lots of cool-looking bikes. We hung out there till it closed, then a lot of us headed over to a warehouse to watch stunters. Here be the eye-candy:

Hi lateott_156:

Cool pictures! I especially like the "ghosting" effect on the people. Did you use colored filters for some of the shots to get that greenish tint? What kind of camera did you use? Thanks for posting these.

Thanks! The ghosting effect was merely the result of the only way to take the pics in the current lighting conditions. Leave the shutter open for 10 seconds and let it capture the movement of the people and the stillness of the bikes. I used no colored filters, and any off-colored tinting that you're seeing might be due to a really offset white-balance. The parking lot lights were really yellow, so I adjusted the WB to make everything look correctly-colored. Well, it didn't (exactly). See the pink CBR in a few of the pics up there? Well... it's not really pink. The camera I used was my usual and only one: the Olympus SP-500UZ .

You had to have seen me sneaking around taking the pics. Couldn't have missed me... Red jacket and this big ass tripod getting in everybody's way. Shoulda just came up and asked me. You coulda pulled your bike out to the middle or something and I woulda gladly done some personally-requested shots. Say hi next time.

Hi lateott_156:

OK, the tripod makes it all make sense. The bikes are in perfect focus and then you get that sensation of movement from the "ghostlike" people. The extra-long exposure is what makes that all possible. Cool.
