Evolution of My Model Railroad Photograph
will present an explanation of how his knowledge of model railroad
photography was self taught.... starting in 1978 with a photo of his
Dremel Moto Tool award in the pages of RMC which was taken with an
inexpensive SLR on the floor of his living room under natural
light.....progressing through the years working with tungsten balanced
slide film and film SLR's including a short period during which he used
a large format ("4" by 5" image) rail camera for covers in the '90's as
a way to produce higher quality large images.
conversion to digital and the change in the photo taking/processing
process plus advantages of that change......Example....In the beginning
using film... multiple images were taken .....developed off
site...studied on a light table.... while now digital is loaded into a
computer on site and immediately assessed....
Lou will also
explain the different makes/models of cameras used along with the
transition from natural to multiple strobe lights then on to
incandescent tungsten and eventually to halogen, which he still uses
