Steer, fantastic shots! Few things to remember:

When you're shooting for a report, use your wide angle lens to cover more from a short distance. Not to distort the subject.

Use small aperture to keep the whole subjet in focus (read depth). You're not with any point and shoot camera.

Spend some time for seeing and absorbing as what you want to shoot. Trust me, you'll get better perspective.

Avoid shooting yeti. This forum has seen enough of him.

Hah, yes... a yeti sighting: I thought he was roaming around Europe taking a rest! I wonder if we can look forward to his take on the show.

BTW... do I get the impression from the pics that everything is fenced off: look-but-don't-touch? I don't think much of that idea!!!

Thanks boss. That last bit is what I really dont do - too impatient. As for distortion, most of it has happened in the vintage section - there was NO place to shoot from. Some of the others, yes I did distort them without reason though. Thad sums up most stalls:

Any further and I'd get the fence/barricade across the front.

Is that the first pickup truck in the Indian market?
I love the Dodge trucks that I find here in Texas.

Hey Steeroid, a BIG thanks for the pics maan. Seeing the pics and the descriptions almost felt like being there (minus jostling crowd).

Looking forward to seeing some of the cars especially the italian jobs - read Palio 1.3 MJD - on the road soon.

Not actually - the first "pickup" was from tata - the 207 Cab.

OT : You must be on the home unlimited package (Rs.900). Switch over to a limited package & see the difference.

Thanks for sharing. This is indeed a virtual tour for people who could not visit in person.
