The London Motor Show 2017 was held in Battersea Park and I thought it would make an excellent Photography day out. The Show consisted of a main Marquee which had several halls showing off the New Cars by major manufacturers like BMW, Vauxhall, Nissan and Fiat but also more exotic manufacturers like Morgan, Caterham and Aston Martin. There were also some cars outside mainly from H.R Owen Dealership which Co-Sponsored the event, Simulator rides from F1, Top Gear and WRC, the usual Food Stalls and the Safety as Standard stand.
It quickly became apparent that with so many people about, taking full length photos was not going to be feasible as there would be people in the background.
The other problem I had was in the Marquee, the lighting included blue led lighting which in opinion looked awful and so I decided to take some detail shots instead:-
At the event there were also some guest speakers, one being Jodie Kidd. She was interview by Tiff Needell who was President of the event, it's not often you get to photography an ex super model but I'm sure she won't like the last photo!
The show wasn't as big as I was expecting and only took a few hours to look around.....I don't think I will be back next year.....unless I'm looking for a new car!
