Once again a photo from Bill Dragoo’s adventure training class in Lexington, Oklahoma last week. This is a portrait of David Judd on his BMW R1200 GS motorcycle. He has added crash bars to the bike, along with a taller than stock windshield, headlight guard and oil cooler guard. I overexposed this photo just a bit. We started shooting right after daybreak and the sun rose fast so I didn’t adjust my exposure settings quick enough to match the rising sun, hence the overexposure. The nice thing about film is the wide latitude – even with the over-exposure I was able to get a decent image from the negative.
