Taking Bike Photographs

I intend not to offend anyone with this. Just trying to help....
One of the pleasures of bike forums is the photographs. I ilke to see the detail of a bike, especially when there are mods. I see that sometimes the detail is lost because of the lighting situation. Detail disappears into the shadows sometimes. Pointing a camera/phone towards the light (or the sun) makes auto cameras close the lens aperture and results in a dark photo of the subject. Taking photographs with the light/sun behind the photographer allows the best opportuniy to show detail. Just sayin'.

i know what you mean, sometimes i wish i would of gotten some sort of colored tank when buying my rebel so it would really pop in photos, but black is the greatest color of all for badass toys imo haha.

That's a good photo. The Rebel being blacked out sure does not help with photos. But with light some of the blacks become a mixture of grey tones showing up detail.
