(C) Allen Pearson Photography
A few years ago, I began my journey back into watching trains or railfanning as it is known. At the time, I was only aware of a few places where I could watch and photograph the trains going by. In some cases, I was having more interference with man-made items in the shots than I wanted.
"Man-made?" I started out in photography as a nature photographer. I was a purist, and still, am in many respects. Being a purist, I didn't want any items created by man in my photos and I didn't use Lightroom or PhotoShop to edit either. I loved portraying nature as God intended its beauty to be. While I am still a nature photographer as you will see on my website and posts, I have branched out into Railroad Photography too.
Back then, I was sitting by the railroads watching the trains without any scanner radio or other techy gear which would give me detail about the trains coming through. This was the way I grew up. So for some of my photography, I do not have the train numbers, I know the date, September 13, 2016, and that's about it. Now that I have a scanner radio, I am learning to gather the detail which would make my photography a little more interesting.
By the way, my photography work can be viewed at www.allenpearsonphotography.com.
