Light leak. And horrible lighting for motorcycle photography. That is what this image says to me. I shot this at the Tombo Racing shop in Oklahoma City along with several other photos from that day. This is Kermit Lottie’s Pro Mod drag racing motorcycle painted up into an OKC Thunder scheme. But as you can tell, I had a light leak on the right side of the picture – probably I partially opened the dark slide. Gotta watch that. Also, the overhead fluorescent light left an ugly strip right down the center of the Tombo Racing logo. Normally in studio would make sure this didn’t happen, but when just grabbing a shot while the bike was on the stand in the race shop, I get what I can get.
