The short days were making photography a challenge six years ago, when on December 22, 2014, Paul Goewey and I photographed the Pan Am Railways office car train at East Deerfield, Massachusetts.
The light was failing fast, and I upped the ISO on my Canon EOS 7D to 1600 in order to stop the action.
I made this sequence of images from the famous ‘Railfans Bridge’ as the OCS backed beneath us,
My RAW files were a little on the dark side and the contrast was very flat, so I made some adjustments in using Adobe Lightroom to improve the presentation.
The last photo shows the unadjusted file adapted from the camera RAW. Exposure was at f3.5 1/100th of a second, ISO 1600, with my Canon EF100mm prime lens.
