Metal of Honor got her day in the sun yesterday as the very talented Nate from Black Diamond Digital took over 400 photos of every angle of her gorgeous curves to document the engravings and for publicity use.
The first ones out of the gate will most likely go to Hot Bike Magazine as they have requested a cover story feature on Metal on Honor.
We shot up at Desert Shores on a corner that put the lake in the background. Our unseasonable cool weather has bid us ado and it was a sweaty 90 degrees plus, even at 8am. Metal and the trailer drew quite a few onlookers among the dog walkers and joggers. Lots of people stopped to check her out and ask about the project.
Shooting something that is highly reflective is quite a challenge and we really put Nate through his paces. Here's the blooper reel...
Everyone wave to Nate, reflected in long leg funhouse glory inside Metal's horn cover.
... and here you can see me holding the light reflector with Dana behind me reflected in John Finn's image on the gas tank and there's Nate again down in the horn cover.
Of course, for all this Nate got some amazing shots. Dana and I are still sorting through them. You can see a few more over at Nate's blog.
