Model railways and photography

...subjects change and you get to learn about all sorts of things, model railways here !

Actually model railways are a good training ground at closeup photography.

Many aim to show their layouts or rolling stock to its best advantage and often try to take photos that can often fool the viewer about whether it is full size or a model.

This is definitely one time that a smaller sensor works best in order to get better depth of field.

Re: Model railways and photography

Or they'll set up outside to try to show the model in a real setting, agin to see how well it can be integrated in a real looking photo and there are the attempts to run a video cam along the layout, etc.

Get enough gadgets going and you could have some real money in this.

And both "hobbies" have lost many of the local B&M stores. And there are also the nostalgic sighs over the days of scratchbuilding, etc., much like the inference that one must know the darkroom to know photography.

The forums seem to becoming less and less civil by the day. So many threads seem to become bogged down in personal insults, accusations of lying and xenophobia. Is it so hard for us in the photographic community to discuss our photographic interests in the manner I am sure we would adopt if talking face to face? I find myself starting to read a thread because it interstes me as a subject but then abandoning the effort because of the personal comments being made or attacks on whole cultures.

I am also surprised that moderation seems not to be addressing many of these abuses.

Oh grow up and stop being a sissy! Go home to your mommy if you can't take the heat. And do you even know the difference between an F stop and a Bus stop? Bet your camera is a pinhole shoebox. By the way, your mommy dresses you funny.

hehehe.... just kidding. I totally agree with you.

'Nothing new'?

Was better when Askey ran it, IMO. He and his wouldn't put up with much back then.

Where is the next "Phil Askey" to start a new photography no BS forum website now with the good cam reviews as seen on this Amazon place?
