My 198B Up To Date Pictures

Recommended Posts

 

 

hi,

Professional tip for photographing machines. To minimise risk of slightly egg-shaped wheels, etc., set the lens on the camera, level and directly opposite the spark plug on the bike, use the fastest shutter speed you can - that will open the aperture and tend to put the background slightly out of sharp focus.

Nice bike, enjoy.

Very good tip's, some more from my personal view of taking photos.

 

You might take the photo while sitting on the floor. the bikes looks much better if the height of the camera is at the same level as the bike itself.

 

A background that is much farer away or if not neutral this is less intrusive.

 

Best photos can be done in the country site or inside a photo atelier.

 

Best hint ever:

Take photos if possible in sun light, if not possible and you are using a digital camera the exposure should be a little bit darker then needed you can then  digital fade in using Photoshop which gives mostly a better color range.

 

 

To the bike:

 

Very good restauration looks awesome!

Original sprockets are worth their weight in money (as gold would be a little bit too much?)

Sprocket does make it look dumpy at the back end.

Will photograph it properly once it's fully sorted.

I'm after another tank so that I don't ruin the new one on it. Doesn't matter if it is tatty. Anyone got a spare they want rid of?

These 250's are worth alot in Spain.

 

The sprocket is wrong size by look of it.
