It was the perfect day on the iconic Mulholland Drive to shoot a portrait of Michael Trucco (Battlestar Galactica, Castle, Criminal Minds, Drone…) posing with one of his favorite motorcycles, a beautiful limited edition Ducati — an art piece on its own.
The morning light was amazing and the dramatic sky set the mood perfectly. The motorcycle was lit with a two large reflectors making a soft yet contrasty filled light. Between the road, the dark sky and Michael’s leather jacket, the palette of gray tones matching the metallic silver of the Ducati is mesmerizing.
This large format image (78” x 23”) is printed on aluminum. Aluminum is the perfect medium to print on as it translates beautifully into two dimensions — it really brings out the texture and the feel of the bike’s metal and chrome.
