I am never normally shy about posting photos of me that I've worked on in here, or on flickr... For some reason here I can proudly show my work without even the slightest flicker of an eye, yet when I think about seeing anything in people's profiles or on their walls I get more than a little nervous. Yet yesterday was the icing on the cake for the level of nervousness that I felt about one of my photos...
This photo was one I created to enter into one of those put a picture on the walls and then let people vote for it type things. I would never normally have done a picture - sometimes these things feel more like a popularity contest - but I was kinda coerced into creating something by Hell and the Gator girls.
Let me explain... Basically the biker MC world have a lot of events known as rallies. These are places that the biker groups can all come together to hang out and have a good time, and I will admit that although I don't fully feel like a biker I am enjoying meeting some new people with different interests at them. The current rally is being held by a biker club called the Doom Crew, and they have planned a few different activities including some freaking awesome bumper cars, and of course a photo contest.
You needed to use a photo that was somewhat summer related as well as being about bikes - so I created something and spent a while fiddling with it - no amount of different background colours or lighting settings made this look better - but I wanted a picture that was a bit of a pin up style and was made to look folded and creased like some biker had just pulled it down from the wall and folded it up to take it with him as he rode out on a summer biker tour.
