Back to the subject of trains, the Yampa Valley Mail flies through East Portal on its way through to Denver with FT 5484 and friends circa late 50’s or early 60’s. Taken on location on the Moffat Road a little deviation from the usual branch line photos.

Hello Erik,

I found this photo to be extremely well done as the lighting and the highlights in the smoke from the engine were balanced.

Your modeling and photography skills are superb. 

Could you briefly explain the technique you used for this photo as I'm certain many of us are just as curious?

Thanks!

 

I have been trying to figure out a way to explain for some time now working on a series of articles for a magazine that has asked me. In this frame it’s one of my straight modules situated in the favorable light with my structures in their respective places. The steam is an added feature that I develop in a painting program, its treated like an illustration with the models as the focus of the image. There is far more to it than that, I hope that it makes sense. Thank you for the kind compliment.

Hello Erik,

Thank you for your response.  I knew conceptually how you set up the scenes, but your treatment of the steam/smoke emission from the locomotive was spot on.  This is what captured my curiosity.  

You mentioned that you use a paint program, is there any way of demonstrating this via a video as I'd like to see how it's actually done?

Also what is the cost of your book at this time?

Thanks!
