56K Warning! Railfoaming 2/14/09

Recommended Posts

Yea, and as usual, I manage to come up with some pictures of my foam trip.

First off, I'd like to start off with the bad ones I never had time or was never prepared for:

 

R46 (R)

R68 (D)

IMG_0569.jpg

R62 (3)

IMG_0575.jpg

 

Now, time for the good ones:

R68 (D) roll sign

IMG_0567.jpg

R62 (1)

IMG_0584.jpg

R142 (2)

IMG_0581.jpg

R62 (3) AGAIN

IMG_0577.jpg

R62 (1) coming in South Ferry (loop)

Now, the train is leaving the loop

An R62 (1) train

The R68 (D)

R160 (N)

IMG_0608.jpg

Is this just me, or does it not say (D)?

What's the point in having strip maps if they don't use them?

We will always remember the South Ferry loop, which has served us for over 100 years.

Nice shots and the (S) but dont use Flash/Auto Flash as its againt the MTA rules and you can get pulled, unless its no flash then u r good [even tho flash shots make the moving images well, but damn MTA cut the use of it], and check this topic on auto Resizing shots on Photobucket/ImageShack:

Still a no-no. That rule is there for safety reasons. The T/Os and C/Rs can be temporally be blinded by the flash preventing them from safely doing their job. Just don't do it.

1) i only use flashes on the back of the cars?

2) it's not pointed at a T/O or a C/R

3) i dont do it in the front or when a C/R is around

4) i'm still learning from error on how to take good underground shots

That doesnt conclude much, seeing that a station worker can pull u over if there was one around [Especially in Queens southern manhattan or city area there are workers around], plus u can blind up passengers. And remember there is Cameras, and if there was an NYPD based cam, oh boy u in trouble seein that they can stop u, by seeing you in the cam and going toward u. I suggest u NOT to do it all, no offence but its for your and everyones saftey

I like your photographs, you're catching some amazing stuff down there. Anyways be careful about the use of flash, just like everyone else said earlier.

Well if you wanna get good underground shots without a flash try the Manual mode. Try 1/13 f stop for a start. Iso around 200.

Nice pics, but please stop calling it railfoaming. It's just railfanning. Foaming is NOT a good thing.

 

BTW, if you want to improve on your photos without using flash, always use ISO 400 underground. If your camera has an image stabilization mode, then use it.
