Railfan Trip on the J (5/16/08)

Recommended Posts

As opposed to my other picture thread the blur is more evident here, and in more photos. My above-ground pics came out better in general. By the way, I railfan the J pretty much every Friday. I'm the guy in the blue (or tan) jacket, or with the E train shirt.

 

Trip Highlights -

(6) from 96th St to 86th St

(4) from 86th St to City Hall

(M) from Chambers to Myrtle

(J) from Myrtle to Jamaica/Parsons

(E) from Parsons to Jackson Heights - Roosevelt Ave

You gotta try to keep to camara still while taking pics. However the R160s FIND and mantthan bound (J) pic at mytle ave came out good. And that RFW shot of the 160 came out good also. All you got to work on is keeping the camara still and ya good to go.

(J)(M) and (Z) are good when they WANT to be. I really like the pics of the FIND and that R142A at 86th Street was gold.

Cool pics! Your underground stuff is a bit blurry and I noticed your ISO is set to 200. Try increasing it to say, 800 and you'll cause your shutter to click faster and capture the motion more clearly. The downside is that the pics may be a little noisier, but it's kind of a tradeoff.

 

Anyway, nice stuff and thanks for showing us.

What he means by noisier is the pic comes out cloudy and with static. Happens a lot on UG shots....

OH I see. That's why my UG pics sometimes come out unclear.
