Adios, San Clemente!
An image of a moving train leaving San Clemente’s train station. I saw the train coming from a distance and I was hoping that it was going to make a stop at the station, which it did. At that time I already developed this image in my head and I switched to shutter priority mode (very rarely do I do that) and I started to experiment with different shutter speeds while it was slowly approaching, I used that to judge the “blur” when it was going to start moving again. I settled on 1/8th of a second and I started to compose this shot for when the train starts moving, I wanted a bigger blur in the foreground compared to the background and for the most part I achieved it; I probably should’ve gone with a shutter speed of 1/10s or 1/15s to get the back middle end sharper. While I was doing all of this, a friend of mine took a picture of me taking the picture (my first appearance on the blog besides my about page :))
