Part 1 - Introduction 

August 2004 Magazine

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.

Class 37 on water cannon at Sheffield. Canon EOS 10D camera, Canon 24 mm f2.8 lens, 4 sec @f5.6, 100 ISO. The “before” picture shows the effects of the lighting at the station platforms. The “after” picture corrects the colour cast and gives a result closer to what the human eye sees.

 

87002 near Roade on a Euston-bound service. Canon EOS 10D camera, Canon 35mm f2 lens, 1/1500 sec @f3.5, 100 ISO. The sun went behind a cloud just before the train came and as a result in the “before” picture most of the subject is slightly dark and dull while the background and sky are bright
