Default Shanghai Auto Show - The Models

The greatest (car) show on earth ! Unbelievably huge (up to 1km in each direction) it has become the #1 place to launch and display your new & latest cars. Not surprising considering when the rest of the world's car market was contracting China's was expanding at over 100% a year ! This year has slowed though ... only a 45% increase expected

Still, the scenes are crazy and shooting cars, models or the environment is made difficult from the sheer volume of people attending - 280,000 last Sunday (opening day) alone !

Anyway more of the cars and environment to come in other threads - this one however is for eye candy !

I heard on the internet that a fight broke out between two of the models at the show, is it true? These girls are gorgeous and the photographer did a good job too, congratulations.

That first image with the phone is awesome.

When you said "eye candy" I was expecting chrome. But these are very nice, some of the models very pretty and your photographs compliment them very nicely.

Thank you Ira ! That first shot was just opportunistic, I was focused on the model an saw the iPhone out the corner of the frame and though it might make a cool shot - so glad you like it ! No idea about the cat fight - it is such a huge place and if it really happened then I'm not sure where or what day it happened. I haven't seen any shots of it (there would have been for sure) !

This link will give everyone an idea of the conditions I was shooting under, some of the less glamourous marques weren't so inundated - relatively ! http://acidcow.com/pics/19456-280000...o-show-on.html

Ed. & PB - cars coming later as I mentioned !

Thank you Harriet !
