Come on Ride the Train

It’s somewhat fitting this week that yours truly is making serious use of the mass transit in Denver because a project that has finally come to fruition is a photo-themed shoot of trains.  I’ve always found them quite interesting, and only recently did I come into possession of a very high quality model train to pose as I desired for specific types of compositional and focal impressions.  Since the podcast isn’t quite finished, I figured now would be as good a time as any to share with you a sampling of my Train project…

So, there’s the “Train Series”.  I tried various lighting scenarios, depth of field, and compositional approaches to see the effect each has.  I know which one(s) I like the best – what about you?  Any favorites, thoughts, feedback, criqitues?  What about your own themed projects?  Any sources of inspiration?  feel free to share them in the comments section!   Happy shooting, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow!

    Great shots Jason. I think my favourite would be the second one. I like the reflection a lot. I would perhaps not have cropped the bottom (top?) of the reflection of the train so the whole reflection was still in place. Lovely images.

    I’m completely with Kevin; second shot is a great one. Reflection makes the shot.
