Trains at Night, A Photo Series Featuring Passing Locomotives Being Illuminated at Night

Troy, NY-based photographer William Gill spent a year perfecting a method for lighting passing trains during the night. Utilizing different flashes and ambient light, Gill created Trains at Night, a series of photographs spotlighting locomotives as they pass through darkened landscapes.

The trains at night project is a combination of my interest in photographing the industrial, built environment and capturing movement at night. The experience of a train passing at night is captivating, with most of the landscape dark, my senses focus on the enormous river of iron rolling though the scene.
