One day I was driving back from a job in eastern Oklahoma and wanted to just stop and take some photographs. I tried a few landscape photos but those didn’t get me fired up. I passed a biker rally and about a mile away I thought “go back and get some photos”. I was not dressed for a biker bash – I had slacks and dress shoes. But I knew most bikers were pretty friendly and wouldn’t mind. So I went back, wandered in, got out my gear and started talking with guys. I had a lot of biker gals raise their shirts and say “photograph this” but that was not what I was after. I wanted to take some portraits of the interesting people who attend these rallies. This stranger obliged and I really liked the picture. Never did get his name. I used an SB-800 off camera firing into an umbrella for this shot. Simpe one light picture and one of my favorites.
