Train Station Photography

Train Stations can be buzzing with photo opportunities and offer the chance to try out your long exposure skills! Especially in the underground or subway where there is low light and trains are coming every few minutes, this gives you the chance to setup a shot of the train passing by in a blurred motion, while keeping the surroundings still. Along with all the commuters busily rushing for their trains, this can create another motion blur chance, if possibly, get to a high point on a separate level and look down at an object – clock, sign – and the people, then try a slow shutter speed.
