I was at the Super Imports Show for 2 days cos I was helping my friend at her studio.
It was one of those 'eye opening' experience for me, as in saw alot of things really shocked me.
Well 1st of all, the highlight of the show clearly is not about the cars, neither is it about the car models. The limelight is obviously on the American models given all that publicity in the papers. The models are really fun girls, they can strike a conversation with you anytime anywhere. Very approachable and intelligent I would say. Unlike the more snobbish local models.
When the models first got onto the stage the first time, all the spectators are busy snapping and 'eye-powering' at the models that nobody bothered to applause them. The poor girls practically walked onto a 'silent' stage and the emcee and the models themselves had to rally and rally for support the whole time. At one point the models got so frustrated that she openly said 'You singaporeans suck'! I cannot disagree.
Then as the models walked around the exhibition hall, from booth to booth, every guy in the hall, and I do mean every guy, was following the girls as if they had never seen a woman their whole life. I see so many people carrying their Nikon, Canon DSLRs following closely behind the girls just waiting for a chance to take their pictures. But nobody would make an effort to give them the support of their appluase when they needed it. In the end the girls would rather stay in their trailer than come out to the exhibition hall due to the cold treatment.
I said to myself this must be the lowest moment I ever witnessed in photography.
Very sad, till now I am still disgusted by what I saw.
