I was recently tasked by Ducon Construction to capture some images of the new $7.7 million Epsom Railway Station, which officially opened on the 12 October 2014. The station is on the Deniliquin Line in Victoria, serving the northern Bendigo suburb of Epsom.
The station is simple and yet functional, offering residents local access to the train system for the first time in 40 years, with a direct link to Melbourne in just 2 and a quarter hours.
My goal on site was to capture not only the overall feel and scale of the car parking area, but also the more interesting platform shelters and lighting fixtures. How to make a train shelter more interesting..? My answer was to shoot it at night, with high dynamic range in mind…
As far as I am aware, this project was completed within 4 months and on budget by the talented crew at Ducon Constructions. As usual most of the images are with my 17mm TS-E, although a few frames (the train, the signage) were captured with my new 24-70 f2.8 L II, which is a beautifully sharp addition to my arsenal.
