Had a senior photo session today and the kid's mom really wanted a shot on a train track. I really do not like train track shots since they have been done almost as often as the caution tape implied nude model shot. I decided if we had to to it I was going to do something a little different before we were done.

Very unique idea. I like it!
I understand the need for lighting, but I think the shadow on his arm coming from a light source in front of the "train" doesn't fit the photo.

. . . the kid's mom really wanted a shot on a train track.

I'm still working that one through the personal imagination machine.

Nice shot. Strange mother?

Really nice take on a common theme. Just goes to show there's a new way to look at every scene.

It was intended to represent two trains heading toward each other with him in the middle. :-) This was just a goof off photo with about 3 minutes of setup and another 3 minutes of shooting. Honestly, I was happy to not have even more harsh shadows given it was a bare speedlight about 5' from him.

Hahahaha!! Mom didn't want this shot, I did because I could not only do the overused train track themed photo. I had to try at least one different shot.

Strange mother? Jury is still out on that one. We have been friends for 25+ years. She is something else.
