The new wraps on the Via P42's have been a welcome change for me when watching Via, making things a little exciting again.  I've been trying to photograph them in different places and ways.  This photo of 918 at Paris Junction was my first attempt at a pan, I admit not the best pan ever but the ground and greenery behind the engine is slightly blurred!

  1. Thanks guys, I tried again yesterday on CN 394 and this shot turned out well: https://www.flickr.com/photos/93850525@N02/34675308990/in/dateposted-public/

  2. The engine is nicely frozen. I agree with Todd, a little more zoomed out will give a larger blurred background which will enhance the feel of the train speeding by. Keep us posted with more Joseph. :-)

    The beauty of electronic DSLR’s, don’t have to waste film (and money) while honing your art.

  3. Great minds think alike Joe! I also tried panning almost at the EXACT location as you…what I found worked best, was manual focus but having your lens zoomed out as far as it can go (get as much as the surrounding area as you can). Shoot in raw, practice the gentle ‘side to side’ movement of your camera capturing the motion of the train, and you can always crop your photo later with great results. A great effort here….looking forward to more! :)
