I could hardly be­lieve how much my pic­tures im­proved in just a day with an ex­pert – af­ter all my decades of watch­ing and record­ing steam trains. This shot of No. 4936 Kin­let Hall is just the sort of clas­sic rail­way shot that you see in the cen­tre­fold of rail­way mag­a­zines, but this time I have pressed the trig­ger! Per­haps the most im­por­tant thing I learned on the day is that you need to spend a lot of time pre­par­ing to get the per­fect shot. Phil knew the SVR and the sur­round­ing area so well, and knew ex­actly where the best lo­ca­tions would be for the pre­vail­ing con­di­tions. You can’t just wing it – lo­cal knowl­edge is es­sen­tial for this type of pho­tog­ra­phy.
