Ladies of Tokyo Auto Salon 2017 (GALLERY 2)

Editor’s Note:
This is the second of two Ladies of Tokyo Auto Salon 2017 galleries - Ladies GALLERY 1 is here. The cars are also quite beautiful, and Autos GALLERY 1 is here. All images were shot on an Apple iPhone 7 Plus. 

Sexy cars really don’t require sexy women to accessorize them.  

...but it happens at car shows the world over. What sets Tokyo Auto Salon apart, however, is the actual separation of the cars and the girls with regard to their fans. Most peeps who want to see the ladies are there just for the ladies, and that’s it - the cars don’t matter. For those of us on-assignment who’d really like and want and need to get a bit of both, navigating the ravenous horde might seem a rough mission, and without the power of the press pass it most certainly would be. The horde is clearly visible in some of the wider shots.

As for my choice to shoot entirely on the iPhone 7 Plus?  

Under normal circumstances, would I deliberately leave a real camera behind for an event like this? No. Never. But in a pinch, one can definitely produce internet worthy images with the iPhone 7 Plus, and I think these images speak as much.  

I shot RAW through the Adobe Lightroom app and then edited them on a computer, which helped preserve as much information as the sensor could deliver. I did have to use an LED light whilst shooting, generally offset on the floor to add highlights and to help with the rather weak dynamic range of the iPhone camera.  

The biggest issues were focus and exposure, and the first day of shooting required a fair bit of trial and error to figure out exactly what the new iPhone’s limits were. When found, I was able to extract some very usable stills from it - click here or on the image below to enjoy those stills.

Action Selfies for Everyone (CASIO EX-FR10 REVIEW SUB-GALLERY) - AkihabaraNews.com
Ms. Erika Handa generously shared some of her shots with us. Sure, she works for CASIO, but in truth she’s far more representative of a civilian than Mr. Moodley the Executive-Level Camera Nerd Reviewer. As such, to round out our coverage of the camera, we were happy to share her selfies and groupies. And so...

Japanese Girls Underwater in Knee-High Mecha-Socks (MOSTLY SFW GALLERY)
Taking underwater photos of girls in bikinis wearing knee-high mecha-socks might be one of the better jobs ever to have been conceived in the history of work. And if one could also get those photos published in a book and sell it for money, the gig would definitely crack the top 10. Well, someone nailed it.
We’ve racked up about 2.5 months since last we published one of these galleries, and the timing works: we tend to do it on Japanese holidays. Today’s gallery celebrates one player in particular: the very gifted and minimally costumed Ms. Ringo Mitsuki.

The Girls of Tokyo Auto Salon 2016 (GALLERY)
If wide and short were the overarching themes in automotive bodies at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon, slender and tall (by japanese standards, at least) was the the look most companies went for when choosing ladies’ bodies to bring attention to their short, wide, show ponies.

The YouTube spot features(ed) a seductively fem-British medical professional breathily placating and reassuring an implicitly male patient struggling with uhhh...struggling with himself...a little too much. It’s well beyond innuendo, but then in the reveal it turns out she’s not talking about self-interfering at all (watch below).
