This time I don’t have the images from the races or from the practice sessions. Somehow most of the images from the three races and practices were corrupted. What gives? I don’t know. Canon DPP cannot read it although initially it could. Using faststone or RawTherapee, I could load the corrupted images but it has a magenta tinge on all of them. Hence here I will just post pictures from the secondary reason why I attended the Malaysian MotoGP 2013. The girls of the expo event and there were many of them.
Besides the races, there was also a trade expo for products related to motorcycle. There were many booths and the scene looked quite hectic. Throngs of people moving around in quite an unorderly flow but, it is also a good place of great opportunity to test the lenses. There were many sales promoters cum models that will put on a smile and pose to any lens that were trained at them, no question asked. I must admit that I admire their patience working tirelessly in the three days event. I knew they were tired because I have had that experience before. Public relation is not easy at times. By virtue of my experience, I am and event photographer and I like to shoot subjects at their natural states. So I began snapping at these promoters before they realised my action and in between customers, I could see their reactions.
The MotoGP race was won by Dani Pedrosa who incidentally won here last year in the wet, his first ever MotoGP win in wet conditions.
