Photo by @catherinekarnow On a recent assignment for National Geographic Traveler in #switzerland, while shooting on the #goldenpasstrain I came upon Roland and his dog, Twinkle. This brief human moment brought my photograph to life. I’m not sure which is more challenging: shooting train exteriors or interiors. The exterior requires careful planning to be at exactly the right place—an ultrascenic spot, with perfect light—when the train comes racing by. Shooting the interior requires some preparation, but really, a whole lot of luck—at least the way I shoot inside trains. It might seem that I could get a lot of good images riding on several trips. But two days later, after multiple train rides back and forth over the same track, I had just three good shots. My favorite of those shots happened in less than ten minutes. #swissgrandtour #classictraintrips #myswitzerland #swiss #photographingpeople For the full story and photography tips, visit On Assignment: on assignment.nationalgeographic.com Switzerland.
