Riding is a story, riding is emotion, riding is a journey, riding is life.
The former “bicycle kingdom” has left the mark of an era, and the current cycling activities also have a distinct brand of a new era.
As an earlier means of human transportation, bicycle has been accompanied by people’s daily life since its birth.
The subjects under the camera of the photographer are rich and interesting, sometimes focusing on people and sometimes on nature.
The story goes on with the pictures of seeing the big from the small and seeing the strange from the ordinary.
The photos with narrative sense and imagination are very suitable for the theme of cycling.
Whether it is transportation or sports, the relationship between people and cars can be expanded.
For example, children can play happily on bicycles; Cross country riding on rugged mountain roads, and the moment of falling is tense and exciting; The suburban cycling of daily fitness exercise is relaxing and pleasant; Bicycle repair shop and old teacher…
Don’t let go of every detail and moment.
These vivid and specific daily fragments can give more full connotation to the photos.
The element of bicycle often has strong symbolic characteristics, which not only participates in the theme expression, but also explains the environmental background.
Appropriate forms of expression can make the works more visual tension, make the viewer never forget, and make the photos more aesthetic.
Bicycle has a distinctive structural shape, which is a superior congenital condition that can not be ignored.
For example, round wheels and arched handlebars, as well as local details, such as worn tires, mottled paint, the color of shared bicycles, etc.
good use will add color to the photos.
People – the protagonist of the story should appear.
The relationship between people and bicycles is the main content of photography.
For example, explain “who and what” directly, and explain it to be “interesting” and “interesting”, capture it accurately in a moment, and make the story vivid and full.
We can also use the natural environment and space to present the comparative relationship between people and the environment, leaving room for imagination.
At the same time, the use of silhouette, angle change and other techniques is also effective.
The story of people and bicycles can make the viewer resonate and associate with the connection between themselves and bicycles, making the performance of photography more close to the ground and thought-provoking.

Photographers in the new era should have the vision and creativity to keep pace with the times, have a pair of eyes that are good at discovering, capture highlights in the ordinary, and leave a new classic image of the “bicycle kingdom”.
