The Pursuit Of Transience Shooting Inside Outside The Train

Justin’s photography tips article featured on Canon Snapshot‘s blog.

“Train journeys are not as monotonous as you think. As a photographer, there are plenty of opportunities to capture the ever-changing landscapes outside the train as well as the scenes inside. The trick is to pay attention, plan well, and be extra quick in maneuvering your camera, because there is no time to lose.

Traveling on a railway locomotive conjures a series of imagery: when Harry and his friends travel to the magical Hogwarts in Harry Potter, or the Whitman brothers and their journey of spiritual self-discovery along the Indian countryside in The Darjeeling Limited. While the journey itself exude a sense of tranquility that gives one ample time for reflection and recollection, there is much more to your ride. The picture-perfect rural landscapes, the impeccably dressed porters, the inquisitive travelers… These invigorating sights, uncommon in our daily travels, are perfect subjects for your train photography collection.”
