22nd October saw my first visit to Tanfield Railway Station (well apparently I visited as a child, but cannot remember that) and it was for their yearly photographic event.
The evening started at 3pm and ran until 10pm, offering lots of different opportunities for light and set ups. During the event I was joined by a few members of the camera club all looking forward to the evening ahead.
There is lots to photograph on the site and will require more visits in the future. Everywhere you turn there seems to be a shot to take. From the engine shed, the tracks outside, the derelicts and the staff (all dressed in period clothing), you can’t fail to get a shot.
The staff put a good range of staged shots on, but only one at a time. I feel the evening would of went better if more than one thing was going on at once, letting photographers deciding what to shoot.
Still I enjoyed the evening and managed to get some good shots and met some friendly photographers.
Shame the weather did not hold out as it started to rain about 8pm, at that point we decided to leave.
All in all, a good event for myself and will have to visit again soon to get more shots.
