A train in full action. It might look odd but this image has not been manipulated.
TECH-INFO: This is just one image from the camera. Except for a few contrast changes and added vignetting there is no photoshopping done in this image. But on the other hand I fully manipulated the light to get this funny looking train. The more advanced flashes like the Nikon SB-800 and SB-900 have a built-in stroboscope function. While I was pushing the train the speedlight fired a couple of times (I think 3 to 6). This gives the effect of multiple exposures stacked together. The flash is used in an umbrella, for soft light, and was standing at the right of the camera.
I really had to do several attempts before I got a few satisfying shots, all late in the evening to avoid any ambient light. People outside were pretty surprised because they only saw lots of short bursts of flash light. Some of them thought it was a broken alarm system :-)
