When the Lighting is Less Than Ideal

There are times when the good news is that you’re trackside with camera in hand when a train is approaching.

The bad news is the lighting is not favorable for photography.

In those instances your best option is to take the resulting image with its subdued colors and convert it to black and white.

The top and middle images are westbound Norfolk Southern trains in Alliance that were photographed on Aug. 24. The bottom image is a CSX eastbound captured in Akron on the evening of Aug. 23.
