Lyford Layout Update IV

4/19/2020

Lyford Layout Video ShootOK. So, if you've been paying attention, you've probably noticed that I haven't posted a new blog post since over a year ago. I have plenty of excuses, but bottom line is that I dropped the ball. Model railroading took a back seat for a while due to other personal events and responsibilities. That's just the way life works sometimes!

Luckily I had some time to get back to working on my micro layout. I pulled it out of the corner, dusted it off, and prepped it for an afternoon video shoot. I even broke the rolling stock out and ran it! I only prepped one half of the layout so that I could use my friend's DIY camera slider. This allowed me to get the camera down closer to the same plane as the layout.

I also set up my friend's green screen in the background so that I could experiment with putting in different backgrounds. So far, I've only replaced it with a black background.

So, without further adieu, Check out the first video compilation that I put together from this video shoot.

I plan on doing more, so please be sure to come back to check them out!
