    Auto show is in town and I am planning to haul my camera down there. Taking a D200, Tammy 17-50, and SB600. Plan is to color correct the flash with a gel for what I am sure will be big florescent can lights. Any other pointers? Not willing to haul around a tripod.

    it's a car show, you're thinking too hard.
    just go for fun and take snapshots.

    pointer:
    if you really want good shots, find a car you want to take on location and shoot solo.

    I always look at my photos after I attend the Auto Show and they aren't much worse than the photos that show up in the car magazine coverage. Like somebody else said, just shoot for fun. Show up 3-4 hours before close if you want photos with only a few people. Take the first couple hours to scope out what you want to shoot and then spend the rest of the time taking pictures. Less and less people as it gets close to closing time. Make sure you're farthest away from the entrance when they announce that it's closed and then shoot pictures on your way out.
