BNSF 614 at Mount Pleasant, IA
BNSF 614 (GE C44-9W), still in its Santa Fe Warbonnet paint scheme, and BNSF 1018 (GE C44-9W) lead a train of corn syrup tank cars east at the Goodyear Road overpass.
The original image was captured on a 35mm transparency (Kodak Ektachrome) using a Canon A2E film camera and a 70-200mm Canon lens. The image was converted to digital using a copy-slide set up. I took an old retail camera box and cut a hole in the top of the box just large enough for a transparency to sit over. Then I mounted a flash via an off-camera cord in the lower part of the box to fire and expose the transparency. This was all done on a basic copy stand setup.
