SHOOTING UNUSUAL LOCATIONS 3

PREVIOUS / NEXT

PHOTOGRAPHY by KRISS on 24 september 2015

Do not do this at home ! I got a model that "tricked" me into realizing a shoot by a railway and I was very sceptic.
This was not nearby anyplace I knew and the model swore that she came here often and that the railway was an old track barely used once a week for a merchandise train.

So I set up the light (two octogonal softboxes) and one light on the body of my D800 and started thinking.
I was not very keen with the surroundings and wanted to shoot at big aperture.
After a couple of shots and when I finally started to get myself into the shoot, I asked the model to go flat in between the rails and I did so as well to shoot a boudoir pose there.

That's when she said "that's strange I feel the earth moving".
Fortunately, it didn't take me half a second to understand what was happening and I told her to jump on the side of the track in the nearby bushes.
I barely had the time to throw the lights in the bushed and jump with all my bags in one hand before getting cut in two halves by a train.

I was very upset and swore never again ! Now, this happened a long time ago and I would be glad to shoot a deserted railway but not in the same circumstances !
