This post is about two things I really  love, shooting on location in Oporto, Portugal and shooting for one of my coolest clients, Bandit Motorcycles. They are a custom bike shop, Beautiful stylish Cafe-racers are their  speciality.  
The City of Porto was one if the gorgeous backgrounds we shot in, I wanted to catch the light at the end of day and the city seen from Porto of Gaia in the background.  I used a three light set up, for this series. 
 

 

 

 

 
 

 

For this shoot I used three SMDV Briht-360, one on a pole to better light the models face and another one with the SMDV BR-300 Beautydish just to light the motorcycle. The last one was really close to de ground just to give some light to the back tire and give it more detail.

 

 

 

 
For this second image I let the sun light my model and used a SMDV Briht-360 as rim light and a SMDV Briht-360 on a boom with the SMDV BR-300 Beautydish to light the bike.
Let me tell you a little bit about  this fascinating windmill  in the background. It is placed on the hill of Montedor in CarreçoViana do Castelo. This is one of three windmills that were built  during the XIX century and this one in particular is believed to be the only one with trapezoidal wooden sails still working in Portugal.

For this shoot of the  motorcycle  alone I let the sun in the clear sky light this amazing location and  the bike with a SMDV Briht-360 as a rim light from the right and another SMDV Briht-360 on the left with SMDV BR-170 Tele/reflecter. To finish this setup I used a SMDV Brith-360 on a boom with the SMDV BR-300 Beautydish.

Even after the sun had set we found a nice place to finish this project and create a outside studio. For this I placed a SMDV Briht-360 on each side to light the background and as rim light and used a SMDV Briht-360 on a boom with the SMDV BR-300 Beautydish to light the model.
