Today’s toy train image takes us out of the steam era and into the modern diesel electric world with this image of a Union Pacific locomotive. Since I shot this head on I felt that a square crop would work well for it and I heavily lit it from one side for a bit of drama.
As a note, I am working on putting together a small display that I can change up and do more than just the extreme close up macro shots and hopefully include a bit of an HO world around the trains. I am also working on a few ideas of taking some shots outdoors with some forced perspective, hopefully with some real trains in the scenes. Also, if you are a steam ear fan like I am, have no fears, there is still a lot more steam to come.
