New LRT expansion

Posted by ryanjackson on Apr 29, 2010 in photos |

I had to make some nice photos of the LRT for a big story on two new terminals.  Here are my two favorite images.

To make this image I shot at a slow shutter speed ( 1/30sec, F22, ISO50) and zoomed my 24-105mm lens while the shutter was open to give the zooming effect.

To make this image I placed my camera (safely) near the tracks, down low with a 16mm fisheye lens on a 5D Mark-II.  I set the shutter speed at 1/125th so that there is a little motion blur.  I triggered the camera remotely with a Pocketwizard so that I could stand 10 feet away and be safe.  I was sure that the conductor of the train could see me with my big cameras and see that I was a photographer.

If I saw someone place a black box with wires coming out of it next to a train track and then stand back with a wireless trigger in his hand I would be concerned!
