News, but not the serious kind
Stand in front of the Harley, Carly!
Blog Guy, it’s me again. The guy you’re tutoring to be a photojournalist. Recently you told me about shooting auto shows, and how all people want to see are the chick models. But I presume motorcycle shows are different – surely readers want to see new motorcycles?
Yeah, and surely Bernie Madoff is looking forward to meeting his new roommate, too.
Cripes, kid. No matter what somebody is trying to sell, you want to get the female models instead, because that’s real news. If you have to include a muffler or wheel, sometimes that can’t be helped.
And here’s another tip. Compare the combo below, from the Tokyo Motorcycle Show today, with the photo on the right, from a 2008 show. If you can get the model ON the motorcycle, you’re on your way to a Pulitzer Prize!
