I had my second photo shoot in one of my favorite places. This time Corey and her sister Abby joined me for an exterior photo shoot despite the cold temperatures in southwestern Connecticut. Taking portraits at the Danbury Railroad Museum is always great fun, and the safest way to incorporate a train track into a shot. I'm all for avoiding cliché shots that involve train tracks in the frame, but since this place is so cool-looking and safe, I figured why not?
The first shoot I did at that location was just a few weeks earlier, and I was thrilled to get back for more. (click here if you wish to check it out) As I've said many times before, one thing I love to photograph is texture, contrast, and scale, so any location with distressed elements like a railroad yard is heaven sent for me.
I took all the photos in this post using my compact camera, a Fuji X 100 F. Initially, I wanted to use my DSLR with different lenses for wide, medium and tight shots; but I had a technical setback so instead, I did the entire shoot using a set focal length that's the equivalent of 35mm.
