    Taken with my D100 and Sigma 15-30mm lens at about 25mm. f/22 @1.5 seconds. The slow shutter speed was to let the locomotives fairly dim headlight register. A diagram of the setup is below the picture..

    The moon is courtesy of Photoshop. This model is approx. 9 inches in length not counting the tender. Noise (due to slow shutter speed) reduction was done on the black background. I hate noise.. :Curved:

    Jarrell,

    Not only is your photo great. So is your diagram of how you did it. I find this very helpful and appreciate the time it takes for you to go the extra mile with explaining your setup for a shot.

    Thank you for sharing!

    You're welcome Patrick. I've always found it helpful when a diagram was included. They're much more explanatory than words.. :smile:

    That is a very beautiful capture, Jarrell. The detail of the locomotive and the folliage is wonderful. At first glance, one might think that it is an image of a full-sized engine...only thing missing is some rust, grease and grime. Your images would present well matted and framed under soft lighting. Great job with the image and thanks for the added insight as to how you put the image together.

    Oh Jarrell,
    So nice to see your work again.
    This is a wonderful image. i really like the night time shot affect.
    Detail and clarity is great. the foliage just touches this off great.
    You do know I love trains.
    Thank You
     
  6. Jarrell, your images are always wonderful and your "How To's" are always appreciated - coming from "The Master of Lighting" you make it seem simple. Thanks for sharing.

    I had to shoot fast because the fog rolled in so quickly..
    52083597.
    :wink:
    and it's hard to shoot fast, handheld at 1 1/2 second shutterspeed!
    I thank you for your kind remarks..

    Nice to see your work again I have really missed your presence here. Thanks fro the Diagram I have just bought a bunch of FCB and have three SB800's and SB600's
     
  15. Simply excellent Jarrell. I always love your studio shots like this and your detailed diagrams to help us lesser folks out. Very nice image and one that model railroaders would like to get their hands on I'm sure. Way to go.

    Thank you Gordon, though I haven't seen any 'lesser' folks around here... :smile:
    I look at all the fabulous bird shots and other things and get green with envy!

    Jarrell, Thanks for taking the time and explaing how you set up the shoot - model RR buffs usually do not take into account the photography aspect of their hobby.
