Tunnel_Cage

Underground railroad 'improvement', I like to think of this shot. An old abandoned railroad tunnel needs this kind of attention, don't you think?

 

This is my first attempt at a flare cage. Could've used one of the lights I brought, but I wanted a little smoke in the tunnel as well.

 

Thing learned:

1) Cage construction ... not so bad. I see where I missed a little when turning around.

2) Flare is BRIGHT! Try f/8 next time.

3) LED behind camera is a godsend. Had to walk backwards in and out of the shot, so extra illumination helped me keep my bearings and avoid tripping.

4) Don't look up when holding flare above head.
