Behind The Lens

Location

Buxton train station On the old Main southern railway now known as picton loop line.

Time

We did some night time workshop at Thirlmere Rail museum before getting on the train you see above to Buxton train train station it was great to smell the steam and listen to carriage squeak as the train puffs its way up the hill to buxton station. This photo was taken at end of the workshop i was already bout to leave and walk home when i seen the train crew setup for a shot. i saw something interesting and set up for nice capture :D

Lighting

the lighting is from the train fire box and the cars behind the train who setup there headlights.

Equipment

Vanguard tripod, Nikon D7200, 16-300mm tamron lens

Inspiration

we just finished up the night workshop many of us already on the train while i was bout to head back too, when i saw the train crew out side for last photo i saw something interesting got my camera out quickly put it on tripod and shot away. what was interesting though i still had last settings so im surprised they stood still enough for interesting night time capture with the steam all around and back lighting from the firebox and cars behind the train.

Editing

I added but more warmth to the image and some clarity, slightly give some blacks and more highlights to help with the face.

In my camera bag

i always take 1 spare lens which gives me more options over the tokina 11-16 wide angle which is my go to lens for most shots. spare battery, water, snacks, micro fiber cloth and 1 hankerchief incase it rains might need wipe off the excess from lens.. and my trusty vanguard tripod.

Feedback

always look back after shooting something. never know what you might see in spur of moment.
