Model Railroads

150908-084753_15JEH

I have been working with the model railroaders as we get the various layouts ready for the holidays.  I have started thinking about lighting, camera and lens settings, etc. and after the layouts are completed I hope to spend some time making pictures of some of the details.

At the same time I have been reducing my cameras and lenses, and before I take the next step I wanted to see how well the Fujifilm X-T1 and the 27 mm lens worked for the layouts.  I had not used this camera and lens before in this manner so I wanted to try it before I made anymore reduction decisions.  It worked just fine.  I am one more step closer to using only one camera.

    In Alamagordo NM, there is an incredible layout of a railroad, and all the towns and mountains it goes through. There are several elderly gentlemen who keep it working and improve on it daily. They were fascinating to talk to and they love their hobby. They have trains in different sizes nd the attention to detail in the towns is incredible.
