With the digital photographic revolution has come the need to learn a set of new skills in order to get the best out of the new medium and this is the first part of a major new Railways Illustrated series aimed specifically at railway photographers.
The series will explain the equipment, practices and techniques needed to successfully capture and process digital photographs and should be of interest to all levels of experience - from beginner to advanced.
The accompanying edition of the magazine describes everything you need to know about choosing a computer for manipulating and storing digital images.
Later parts of the series will show you how to improve digital photographs. For example, on the following two images position your mouse over each to see the “before” and “after” versions.
NOTE: it may be necessary to hold your mouse pointer over the image for a few seconds to allow the web browser to change the picture.
