C.E.M.C.C. Annual Show Day, 2010


Posted on September 30th, by Andrew in Classic, Other. 7 comments

I took a little time out last Sunday to check out the Classic & Enthusiast Motorcycle Club annual show day at the Cooper Street Reserve in Engadine about 40 kms south of Sydney.

I dragged my trusty camera along to get some photos. It reminded me of how damn hard it is to get decent shots at bike shows. Way too many people and bikes all jammed way too close together. Solution? Shoot details or shoot upwards. I hope you like the results.

PS. Any C.E.M.C.C. members or friends who’d like to have their bikes featured on Pipeburn, please feel free to get in touch.

    Tell me about it. I went to see participant bikes of Motorcycle Cannonball at Oklahoma stop. It was impossible to get any decent pictures of bike. People gathered around the bikes as they arrive, like flies on rotten meat in hot Summer day..

    You did great job shooting them.

    What type of camera do you use a 35mm perhaps or a maybe a filter. These pictures have a certain 60s-70s patina to them that I enjoy. Nice work!

    @RebellionInd I use a Nikon D90 DSLR and then Photoshop to adjust the colours, add a vignette, etc. I'm glad you like them :)

    What is the bike with the dual pipes, fourth pic down on the right. That is beautiful!

    Takes a lot longer but this is a good effect to save bike show pics…

    Yeah – that is pretty slick-looking, but as you say the time involved in deep-etching all the bikes could prove a little epic.

    Personally, I'm a fan of photoshop work that doesn't look like it's been photoshopped – e.g. as if it could actually be a real photo. But that's just me…

    @HotRodTroy That's a Ariel Square Four, I reckon. Cool, huh?
