|Sage Junction with only backdrop photograph in place|
A small station and a water tank were installed behind the track. There is a small parking lot behind at the left of the station. The road from the parking lot goes behind the station and seems to extend into the backdrop. The scenery in front of the photograph was constructed to match the backdrop photo.
The photographer for the ATSG is getting better. He discovered Helicon focus. Several photographs are taken at different focal lengths focusing from the furthest element of the picture to just in front of the nearest element. The photographs are then combined via Helicon focus to produce a picture that is in sharp focus at every distance. The scene was lit by two lights plus the overhead light. The color is by setting the camera on real. The aperture is set to the smallest opening, only F8 on my camera. The focal length is 50 mm without any zoom.
