The Evolution of My Model Railroad Photograph
by Lou Sassi


Lou 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.  

Then the 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 today.....
