1957 Triumph Tiger 110 - Painted with Light

Check out this bad ass 1957 Triumph Tiger I found on Bike EXIF with one of the coolest pics I've ever seen taken of a motor bike.

The photographer who took this pic, Harold Ross, uses an unusual technique: light painting. This involves working in a completely dark studio, opening the camera shutter for a long time, and then ‘painting’ on the light using a modified fiber optic cable.  Just the thing to show off the fine curves of a vintage Triumph twin.


  1. That bike was built and owned by my late father, Snuffy Smith. It now resides in our good friend, Al Hartmans collection. Harold was our neighbor and did that photo a while back - he eventually submitted it to bike exif.


  2. Hi Matt,

    Your father did a great job on the build and your friend did a great job on the photography. A stunning combination! Thanks for the comment.
