Just for the Fun of It

In the past few years I had be drawn away from them by more fruitful ventures, but I’ve always held in the back of my mind that I would never give up shooting railroads. Recently, I’ve fallen on a bit of a bad streak – no paying work, more specifically. I just want anyone who reads this to that I’m not going to give in. Making images will always be a part of me.

My photographic background actually lies with railroads. I honed my eye and my brain on trying to make these industrial behemoths seem approachable – even artistic.  Not only can railroads make for some interesting imagery, some of the folks you’ll meet can be quite the characters. Here’s my latest image. It’s a Composite of a normally exposed photo of the train, and an earlier 7-image HDR of the station platform. I know it’s not the strictest of Journalistic standards, but then again…it isn’t meant to be. Sometimes it’s fun to make something pretty out of what is otherwise a fairly sterile image.
