Author: Mgoldman

Just caught her coming into Lahaska - November 11th, 2012.

1/5th - needed the practice.

I still dont know how you accomplish these types of photos. Do you use a special tripod or something?

A little pan gravy with your stuffing.

Can almost make an easy 60-40 day now with 2 steamers in action near each other.

Sorry Mitch, but I have to agree with Matthew!
Thank you both for your contributions to the development of the art of railroad photography.

Tripod? What an excellent idea!!!

Actually, most if not all are handheld. Unlike a
pan you do not have the momentum of your swing to
level and balance your shot - so a zoom pan is
much trickier to capture sharply.

With a zoom pan - you "simply" zoom out as the
subject zooms towards you and hope for the best.
It's a shooting match - select a speed that
will create good blur and choose the fastest
shutter firing rate and in a batch of 9 images
or so, hope you get one or two.
