2018 came roaring in with a flood of wonderful photo ops at CES. We had the chance to shoot nine stunning exhibits and from the unveiling of the new electric Byton vehicle to the massive and immersive exhibits of LG and Panasonic, it was a exciting week of browsing and photographing some of the most fun and elaborate exhibits you’ll find anywhere.
Byton, a startup Chinese electric car company had exhibits both inside and outside the convention center. The company created a test track in the parking lot of the Las Vegas Convention Center and as we photographed the outdoor exhibit at dusk, we had some wonderful opportunities to add a little Las Vegas to the photography to help them show off their presence at the most important electronics event in the world.
This photograph of LG’s curved-TV walk-through video tunnel presented some of the biggest challenges a photographer can face–shooting straight into glaring TVs in a very dark room. To boot, the floor had not been vacuumed and was covered with tiny debris. Compositing separate exposures for the screens and the room and touching up a whole lot of tiny spots on the floor, we think were able to produce a wonderful photo of the exhibit in less-than-ideal shooting conditions.
And here are a few extras that show some of the fun spaces we were able to photograph.
