One of my favorite photographers is the danish Franz-Michael S. Mellbin, not only is the guy an ambassador but he is also an excellent photographer that documents the bicycle culture in Copenhagen. There is something about his photos, close up shots of people biking often cough up in their own thoughts.

I always wanted to do the same but it’s hard to take bicycle photos. First of all there are all the technical details, you are gonna have to know all the advanced auto focus features in your camera and have some good expensive lenses. Then you have to stand on the street with a big long lens and point it towards people biking right towards you, not very comfortable if you are not used to it. And then you have to find some good spots in the city where you can get the the best shots, ideally a place where you can stand and they drive directly towards you, not many places are like that.

I’m still in the progress of learning how to do bike photography best. There will be a “part 2” later where I explain what lessons I’ve learned. For now I just want to share some of the photos taken during the last year.
