Shooting From The Train

After finishing our 1st morning shoot in Cuyahoga Valley and a late breakfast, we went for a train ride to learn the lay of the land and get a better feel for the possibilities. Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad runs through the park and for $15.00 you can ride all day. It took about 3 hours for the full trip and it was a most enjoyable time. We took our gear in case we decided to get off the train. While we never found anything that motivated us to get off the train, we did see some interesting sights. I used my Infrared converted D200 and shot from my seat on the train. The results were surprising. The train window had lots of reflection and glare but my shots did not contain these distracting elements. The camera is fitted with a filter that blocks visible light so reflections in the visible spectrum were not a concern.
