Industrial Photography of AeroTrain
21 Feb, 2010
Washington Dulles international Airport (IAD) has a new people mover system called the AeroTrain. The system utilizes 29 Mitsubishi Crystal Movers. Last week we photographed the AeroTrains for Mitsubishi. The Aerotrain is a welcome addition to Dulles Airport. As a photographer, I travel frequently with lots of heavy bags of camera gear, so I appreciate riding on a shuttle train instead of walking.
Unfortunately, there was still too much snow on the ground to do any outdoor photography. It was a real rush to get the trains lined up in the maintenance facility before they went into service for the day. I hope to go back and shoot the trains in motion with some planes in the background. I love doing this kind of industrial photography of planes, trains and automobiles; most photographers like big shiny stuff that moves fast.
