Have you ever wondered what it is like to look over the shoulder of a photographer? Each company had their own photo shooting at its booth. So had Epson.

Interesting setup showing how the model is propped almost horizontally into a quad bank of soft boxes.

One of the many photo shoots (sessions) going on at photokina featuring giant umbrella style lighting. Bigger is better?

The Leaf booth is just a couple of meters away from ours, and they're putting up quite a show; they have a hypnotist who's doing hourly shows (the link with Leaf products eludes me), but they also have an almost continuous photoshoot to show off their studio equipment.

I was looking for skin tones myself and found these at the Samsung booth.

Nice skintones!

Over at the Sigma booth, the new SD14 with a new Foveon chip is praised for its reproduction of skintones. And what better way to show that off than with models showing some skin?
Fortunately, my Fuji S2 also does a good job at the skintones, but the crowd was so packed that I could not find a place to hide, so by a rare exception I am in the shot myself.

All the way over at hall 6, which is a bit short of audience, there's a booth where you can get a beauty makeover and a good vanity shot taken. I guess this is where spouses that were dragged along to Photokina by their enthousiast other half end up...

I shoot all my panoramas with a Fuji S2 Pro, and I am really happy with that camera. It's starting to show it's age though, so I have been eagerly awaiting a new Fuji camera.
The S5 Pro was previewed on Photokina. It looks suspiciously like a D200, but has Fuji's SR pro sensor technology in it for additional Dynamic Range. The resolution sounds a bit low though, at 2x 6 Mp. Apart from D200-like features such as WiFi connectivity, Fuji's Face Detection technology seems an interesting addition for checking image sharpness.

Working the impossible pose

Almost every booth, be it for a camera manufacturer or postprocessing equipment, needs a model shoot to demo their products. And ofcourse it's not just the contracted pro photographers taking pictures...
I caught this model working an impossible pose for her photographer, and the hungry onlookers.
