photocrati galleryI had a long drive today to Edgewood, Maryland to photograph the newly constructed self-serve MARC commuter railway station. The four images I posted are only a fraction of the total shoot. With every assignment I try to tell a story from showing exteriors and interiors plus all the tiny details, even the bathrooms, fencing and signage. Most of the time I’m lucky enough to have a client with me to point out things, however, this time I was on my own. The client e-mailed me a layout of the station with a map of locations around the station to shoot. In all probability I will go back in the early hours of the morning and at night during sunset next week to get additional images, sometimes I do this at my own expense just to make the assignment look complete and have some blow away images. I added a couple of images from my stock files to show the drama created in the evening and to compare the old with the new. The Point of Rocks station is still standing and being used as a commuter station. It’s been a long day starting with portraits early in the AM and working in the heat of the day. The portraits from this morning are already edited and on line and the client has placed a rush order. I’ll finish editing the Edgewood shoot tonight and then I meet with a bride and groom tomorrow for a wedding in 2014. I love weddings I’m just an old fashioned hopeless romantic.
