This is a video/photo study of a rail car done as an exercise to develop my video shooting and production workflow skills. I am new to all aspects of video, which includes my tools: my Canon Vixia HF10 HD video camera and my Pinnacle Ultimate 12 software.

I have always been drawn to dark and foreboding industrial scenes, and in that regard, practically anything related to railroads captures my interest, at least visually. The music is Smokestack Lightnin' by the great Howlin' Wolf, which served as an underlying inspiration for this video.

Some of the images in this video were shot with my Nikon D200 using a 10-20mm wide angle lens, though the majority of this video was shot as a 1920 x 1080 at 60fps using a .7x wide angle adapter on my Canon HF10.
