Step away from the Lamborghini so I can see you better!

March 4, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m back for more of your professional photo advice.

I understand that there are commercial aspects to photojournalism, and I’m ready for that. You know, shooting gadgets, expensive toys. Can I have some tips for shooting a big glitzy auto show?

Sure. You want to make the new models look very hot and sexy.

Thanks! So which parts should I shoot?

Parts? Well, here are some photos from the Geneva Car Show that is going on now. I guess you should focus on legs, thighs, curves…

Wait a second. Aren’t we talking about CARS?

Cars? Are you stupid? When I said MODELS, I meant… Oh, never mind, you seem to be hopeless when it comes to real news photography!

Are you sure those gals in the Daisy Duke shorts are SWISS? That’s the land of chocolate! They must be from somewhere else!

@Dee, you should see some of the girls we have in Switzerland! Yes, the land of chocolate, but also of Heidi and yodeleing, which burns up fat like mad!

I think the models would look so much better if they were under the tires…
