Austin Steam Train

******** READ THOROUGHLY BEFORE COMMITTING **********

Located in Cedar Park, this will be an early morning shoot. From 7:15 AM - 9:30 AM. Being ready to shoot at 7:30. Because of their popularity with photographers, they now have a fee for this time. I AM paying this fee, to book the time. Thus the fee WILL be passed on to you, should you wish to participate.

SPACE is limited to 10, because of the size of the Train yard. I don't want everyone tripping over each other, nor getting into each other's frames.

Once our photography portion is finished, you are welcome to PURCHASE a train ticket and enjoy, the ride to Burnett and back, photographing along the way. (Will have to be purchased one week in advance, they fill up quickly on the weekends). Otherwise you must leave the train yard, NO EXCEPTIONS.

We want to always put out best foot forward and observe their rules of conduct, so we might return again and again.

Needed:
Tripod (optional), sturdy shoes (NO SANDLES), of course your camera. There will be climbing up and down steps (getting on and off train).

We have complete access to Train, inside and out, except Engine, That is with a Guide.

    Excelent photos, wish I could have made it. One question. Is it the norm these days to process all shots with software, or does anyone shoot wysiwyg?

    October 20, 2013

    • Lindsay S.

      Whatever.

      October 21, 2013

      I am not telling you how you should do your photography. However, if you say that my way is not photography but rather graphic art, then I'm going to argue my point. :)

    How much is the fee? Couldnt find it in the post..

    September 28, 2013

    • TA B.

      Meetup won't allow me to set up a payment acceptance. So... if you want to be eligible to go on this outing, it is $6 each, payment to be made to my Paypal account. They charge $25 an hour and we will be there two hours = $50 plus Paypal fees. I am just asking to be reimbursed for what I am paying. Payment must be made prior to meetup date.

      The first people who make a payment will be able to go. IT IS NON-REFUNDABLE. And FIRST COME FIRST SERVED basis. Make sure you can go before signing up!

      Payment e-mail to [masked]
