Light ‘Em Up!

September 14, 2017

No, not enemy combatants or cigarettes, but your typical railfan subjects.

I got out a bit last night. 9/13/17, to try my luck at multi-flash photography with a kindred spirit. We only had two lights to play with, but it was manageable with the stationary subjects we shot.

UP SD40N 1890 waiting to enter the Rohm & Haas plant in Bayport. Bayport
is an industrial area just south of Strang Yard.


CREX 1340 is doing DPU duties on a BNSF loaded rock train near the south end
of the Mykawa siding in south Houston, near Hobby airport.



Lastly, BNSF 8172 on a short tank train waits at the north end of Mykawa siding for a route to open up into the Houston terminal area.


As you might guess, I really like the look of the night shots. Stay tuned, I need to practice this new way of shooting as I’d like to use it for the KCS Christmas train which will be visiting my area later this year after a two year absence.

    Nice photo work, are your lights large or standard strobes?

    Really enjoy your work. Retired in the hill country four years ago but lived in Sugar Land, Sugar Creek, from 1971.
