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"

First day with the Digital
Here's a blast from the past. Took this shot on my first outing after I switched to digital - December 18, 2004. A shot of the now defunct New England Central Railroad's Santa Train that ran between Palmer and Monson, MA. Taken going over the Quabog River in Monson, MA. Yes, those are Green Mountain RR coaches. This was also the day I learned the hard way how important fast CF cards were, as well as how tight 28mm is on a crop sensor body...
