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. :cool:

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.

It's gonna be a bitch to get good pics without a tripod at night. Flash might work for you, though. What kind of camera is it anyway? Can you manually configure the settings? Have fun, and go ahead and put your pics up on this thread.

Definately a nice turn out, some awesome looking bikes as well. What do people think about the LEDs that people use to light up their bikes? I know its kind of cheesy on cars now but is it still acceptable one bikes? Either way I like it.

If you're reffering to me as the "real photographer," then I'm flattered, but you're sort of off. I'm just an amateur, and I just got lucky that night. My goal is, however, to build up my skills so I could maybe make some money off the hobby later on.

I'd be happy to. Bring your camera next time and find me. I dunno if I'll bring the tripod next time, but I'll still have the red jacket on (since it's the only one I have).

LED light look cool on bicycles too ~ who's going to Zorba's Tuesday ?

Definitely a nice turn out,
some awesome looking bikes as well.

Either way I like it.
If you like LED lights, install them ~ then show them off at Zorba Bike Night - Home . . .
