So officially over 2 years ago exactly on February 20th 2011, because of an incident on the E And F Trains in Manhattan, A surprise came by on the C Train but what? New Technology Trains (R160s) made a special run on the C Train to 168th Street making all C Trains stops. Now what makes it history from Daniel Smith Photography Productions? Because Daniel Smith was the first person to ever get photos those trains running on the C Train in SERVICE when he was using a Nikon D40x at the time. The New Technology Trains on the C Trains felt kind of different from riding a R32 C Train. And at the same time people were actually surprised on what they saw (Including automatic announcements) and the train wasn’t too cold or too hot. Good experienced I’ve had.
How did I know it was supposed to happen?
I didn’t know because I was coming from the Gym (YMCA 63rd Street and Central Park West) and when I entered the station I was heard there was a police investigation on the E And F Trains and they were suspending service in Manhattan on those lines in both directions. While hearing that I see an unusual train coming and luckily I took my camera with me that day so. I was like lucky
I’m rating this a 10 out of 10 because it was nice.
Here’s the full story on how “Daniel Smith Photography Productions” started so sit back and relax
It all started in 2002 (7 Years Old) when my interest of the NYC Subway was still growing, I started to visit those NYC Subway fan page websites such as ttmg.org and nycsubway.org which contained a lot of subway photos as well as looking at the old SubwaySpot.com and nycrail.com (Which has vintage 1990s photos). It got me into doing Joy Train riding which was fun and exciting for me and every year, I would try to explore and learn new stuff. But I felt like something was missing when I did those trains but WHAT? I needed to record these adventures with pictures and to do pictures I needed a CAMERA. When the new R160s (New Technology Subway Cars) were being delivered, It gave me the opportunity to photography trains including the old subway cars that were going bye bye for good. And from that point on that change the shape of me. It wasn’t until late 2008 I got my real non cheap digital camrera “Insignia” and then in early in 2009, the Nikon L18. When I got the Nikon L18 that changed a whole lot out of me. I grew a larger appreciation of photographing trains (Especially 2009-2010) and I learned more about improving photos and stuff. Around mid 2010, after I’ve gotten my first DSLR, I started doing photographs of nature and parks and sometimes beaches and people. The nature walks (Which I still do today) is good and relaxing for photos including Central Park. Today in the Present, I’m still learning ALOT more photography (There’s no such thing as never learning), And I’m trying to get into photography when I finish High School. Photography is something I will NEVER Leave.
