The new Dogma K8s from Pinarello is a really exciting subject for my still life photography. Shape and textures of this bike are something I'd like to play with endlessly. Beside framing and composition I've worked with light occlusion as I like the bike emerging from pitch black.
 
Setting up lighting for the handlebars shot.
Perfect occlusion achieved using Lighttools Egg Crates 30° on small Rotalux..
4 strobes out of 5 are all pointing toward the camera... not a single flare has been removed in post.
