2015 Tampa Auto Show: People standing in front of cars



As if shooting an auto show (sans press pass) with a 50mm prime lens and a crop sensor isn’t nightmarish enough, I decided to try and get a decent shot of this Jaguar F-Type in the convention center’s main thoroughfare. Needless to say, distractions were abundant.


After my Friday morning trip to the heavily-attended Tampa Auto Show, I have an impressive selection of ruined photos (maybe I should call them surprise portrait sessions). Being the resourceful blogger I am, I decided to make the best of a bad situation and share the sub-par images with the world by creating this short photo story.





An ever-present, slowly moving crowd surrounded this SLS AMG throughout the day. Obviously, this provided plenty of great, unobstructed photo opportunities.



A beautiful blue BMW i8, perfectly blocked by a pack retirees. I know it’s hard to believe, but this was not the Republican National Convention. Those scissor doors just really draw them in.



I’m not sure if that’s the new CTS-V breaking this man’s neck, or just that sweet Cowboys T-shirt. Anyone else notice how tame the CTS-V hood looks in comparison to the ATS-V’s?



Sorry, man. The RS is locked. And no, the promo girls wouldn’t open it for me. Or anyone else for that matter. That being said, this car looks fantastic in person. I wonder how those ST owners are feeling right about now.



Nothing beats getting that perfect iPad shot. Although yellow isn’t exactly the most alluring color the GT350 is offered in, the car looked beautiful nonetheless. The alcantara steering wheel is a nice addition as well.


I’ll be revisiting the show tomorrow afternoon, so it’s reasonable to expect a second installation of 2015 Tampa Auto Show: People standing in front of cars. As always, thanks for reading. Make sure to connect with me on social media!
