Sleeping Giant<br />
A former New Haven EMD FL-9 sits quietly on the grounds of the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, CT as the crescent moon sets in the background.  This was taken during a test night shoot.  It was the first time I had used studio monolights to light a night scene - this was using two lights - one nearly face on, and the other broadside.  Traditionally we had used a portable Lumedyne flash, which was used to evenly light the scene.  This method enabled the use of shadows to add some depth, and preserve the night "feel"
