Big Diesel, Blue Sky

Big Diesel, Blue Sky

Several years ago, I worked for an industrial manufacturer. Part of my job was to photograph large stainless steel parts before and while they were being loaded onto flatbed semi-trucks parked in our lot. Having never been a “gear-head” or anything remotely close to mechanically inclined, I was surprised by my fascination with the big rigs. Many had unique paint jobs that their proud owners kept shiny clean. So while I was passing the time waiting for skids to be loaded, I would snap a few photos of each diesel truck from different angles. At first I wasn’t sure what to do with my growing collection of semis. After a bit of tinkering in Photoshop – wiping the truck clean of any logos, isolating the vehicle then dropping in a perky new sky – I had quite a nice grouping of microstock images. Since the vehicles were parked and I was able to get up-close and personal with them, my big rigs had a certain dramatic flair that proved quite sellable as stock photos. Today my collection, “Diesels by LaRoach“, found on Dreamstime contains many top-selling images.
