Industrial Photos: Make Grit Look Good

Dust, dirt, rust, and grime is all in a day's work when photographing in an industrial setting. The objective is to make all that look good for the client. Yes, we could spend hours washing and cleaning; but is that really what makes the environment look good? No, it isn't. What makes it beautiful in the midst of that work-a-day world is lighting and composition. If we take a moment to survey the surroundings, we can see the art in the architecture, the beauty in the building, and the interesting in the industry. So, to make industrial photos successful, use a little light and a lot of vision to bring out the uniqueness in a location.
