Today we have Perry Fields atop his BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycle. Perry was attending Bill Dragoo’s Adventure Training course in Lexington, Oklahoma when he stopped along the shores of the South Canadian River for this photo. I set up my Toyo VX-125 film camera and took this portrait of Perry on his bike using Kodak TMAX-100 black and white film.
Steven Marshall rides his Kawasaki KLX-250 motorcycle during training at Bill Dragoo’s Adventure Rider training camp at Lexington, Oklahoma. Steven parked along the banks of the South Canadian River where I had set up my Toyo VX-125 camera for this shot. He waited while I loaded Kodak TMAX-100 black and white film in the camera and squeezed the shutter.
Tarren Shaw is aboard a BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycle that is nearly identical to mine. He has removed his windshield to keep from damaging it during the training, but otherwise it is nearly identical to the bike I ride on a regular basis. This portrait was taken at the South Canadian River at the Sundog ORV trails in Lexington, Oklahoma during Bill Dragoo’s adventure rider training course. I nailed the exposure on this images and you can see the wide latitude of Kodak TMAX-100 film.
Today we switch motorcycles – Scott Limke is riding a BMW F800GS motorcycle – a very nice ride. I had one of these for about a year and enjoyed the bike. Again Scott was at Bill Dragoo’s adventure rider training course in Lexington, Oklahoma at Sundog ORV trails. Like yesterday’s image, this one was a bit overexposed yet I still was able to recover a decent image from the frame. It is common to have 12 stops of latitude from Kodak TMAX-100 film.
