2012 Auto Show Extravaganza

The 2012 Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, is an annual car show that attracts 100's of thousands of people yearly. The Auto Show this year, had a massive turn out, with crowds of people filling the Javits convention center area's.

Getting there was just as tough as getting around while you gained access to the awesome show.

I went there with my cousin and his friends, which one of them had three kids. The funny things is I had a totally different agenda entirely then them, and should of informed them early in the game prior to walking around and literally losing sight of them the entire way, with me trying to take photo's of everything I could.

I also brought my new camcorder, besides my old Android camera smart phone thingy. I was enthusiastic though, and truly tried my best to capture as much footage as possible, I simply wanted to learn how to use the darn thing, and so that I could feature a really cool hub here for folks.

The plan was simple, I had initially planned to have some very fun filled video footage, audio, and great imagery to share, but it didn't quite turn out that way when I got home though and checked out all of the video footage later that night (go figure!). Unfortunately for me, I'm not a professional cameraman in fact, and so please bear with my amateur like performance if you see some out of whack content I've managed to scoop up.

The Battle to get the Best Camera Angle's was intense

Actually it was quite the battle to get footage at the car show this year, which I also attended in 2010, but that year was much easier for some reason with much less people to bump shoulders with.

Plus I had a computer bag I was carrying that was literally driving me crazy, nonetheless it was worth the tough struggles. With peoples heads jumping in the way every ten seconds, and kids just slamming into me entirely ruining some pretty awesome poses and shots I had almost accomplished taking.

See that big head in the way LOL

that head wasn't me of course but this is the intense battle fields of digital cams flying everywhere, and people trying to get the best shots, with Ipads and all

I just had the time of my Photogenic Life or did I, this was some pretty Funny stuff!

The best part about the Autoshow for me was trying to get through all the people, it was like a human obstacle course, and keeping up with my fleeting party of 9 people, 4 adults, and 5 children was also pretty challenging while taking the quickest hot! photos I could muster lol. It was a jungle out there, and it was definitely worth while, because I had a wonderful time. Oh I forgot to take a picture of me, haha the crazy camera guy.


People were everywhere so taking photos was tough

Why Auto Shows are great for hub Topic Ideas?

I'm preparing a great deal of hubs to share this awesome car show with others here on hubpages and beyond, because it wouldn't be fair to spend all that precious juicy content onto a single page. Let alone have you scrolling for so long that your mouse fingers got swollen.

I pretty much am not an expert on non of this subject matter, but it was definitely worth a try to showcase, some awesome footage for a newbie in the photography, camera man, and video/short film productions departments.

Oh and maybe next time I'll arrive at the Auto Show like 1 hour before it opens so that I get first dibs on the best angles as well.


Answer:

The top reasons why going to a cool Auto Show is a great idea & definitely for many hubs to write about is.

  • Many people love cars, and the imagery you can collect there is simply amazing!
  • Car reviews can be written about them in the future, and in the present tense as well.
  • People love images & sharing them here will allow them to get shared across the web, using Pinterest, and many other sharing tools. (Share & Share alike)
  • Its super fun to write about, and you can let loose by being as hysterical as you wish.

Cool Poll to enjoy!

      Hi Pwalker281, thanks for showing me some more love, man I owe you a great deal, I need to get to your hubs pronto, I must say I loved the show a great deal, and went to my very first one back in 2010, but this time I'm a hubpages author, and had a greater intent to catch some juicy imagery to write about here, lol.

      Great shoots!! I agree a hub about automobiles is an excellent idea because there is an audience out there looking for new cars.

      My father used to take us to the annual auto show in Washington DC almost every year when we were kids, something I always looked forward to. Haven't been to an auto show in ages, so your photos brought back a lot of memories for me. Probably won't we writing any hubs about on the subject, so I'll have to be content to read yours :-). Voted up and interesting.
