Streamliners at Spencer; Fans, Photographers and the People Behind the Scenes—TRACKING THE LIGHT Special Post.

It’s not just about the equipment.

The locomotives were largely static and thus relatively easy to photograph. However, people move about constantly, and getting your friends to hold still long enough for a portrait in an environment characterized by sensory-overload, can be tough.

On the plus side, most everyone was smiling.

I used both a Canon EOS 7D and Lumix LX-7 to make digital portraits, while a few photos were captured on slide film using my EOS 3.

Below is a selection of my results.

  1. Smiles are GOOD.

    Was the woman in the yellow dress provided courtesy of UP, or was did she just happen to show up?

    I have enjoyed your coverage of the event!
