According to people who believe in rules, cars and motorcycle photographers must at all times avoid direct sunlight, be it in the studio or on location. Having been taught car photography by one of the three greatest car photographers, and having worked for the other two, I know that the only rule is that there are no rules.

Creative people are always pushing the creative envelope, the rule people just follow the people who actually are creative.

Coming into the parking structure where I have shot so many of my other car shots, I saw a shaft of sunlight hitting this Harley, "Hog." The glaring hot spots on the chrome are called, "specular highlights." Direct reflections of the sun.

I immediately pulled out my camera and started to shoot, knowing that my shot would annoy all of the rule people. It's such a joy to puncture over inflated egos with small minds.

A gloriously gleaming object of lust!

Rules, what rules?
