    I hit the Chicago Auto Show and took some pics. Well, a lot of pics. I discovered a lot of things about shooting such events.

    1) Lighting is horrible. While it might be strong in some areas, it's often too dark in others and many times your subject will be out of reach for your flash.

    2) People suck. Man, it's impossible to get a good shot with all those people milling around! I had to resort to close up shots where I didn't always get the entire car in frame. That's ok, these shots can be creative too.

    3) Security wants to see in your backpack a lot.

    So, here are some of my favorites.

    Pretty good shot. One question though...why do a lot of photographers wear caps backwards? lol(ok I know why backwards :p)

    I had a Sox cap on because I need a haircut. I have it on backwards because, well you know why. :)

    Awesome pics for someone new to photography! You're moving toward professionalism with leaps and bounds! But did you see the shoes on the photographer in the last photo? Fashion police!!!

    Nice work, Tim.. Brochure worthy, every one of them. The Bumblebee Camaro could have been a little lighter, but the Nissan with the Nissan sign in frame is splendid!

    Very nice shots. Very well done considering the cramped setting. That corvette concept is so cool.

    I found myself with the same problems at an indoor bike show (pics are in my flickr, 2nd page).

    Awesome images! 2nd photo is my favorite. What kind of car is that?
