Photographer's Note

Rust holds a great photography potential due to it’s special texture and color. During the processing of my Industrial Theme I discovered that getting a good “rusty” photo is quite difficult. Usually you get a very “flat color” and lose the texture.

So I made a little research:
This is an
average Rusty Photo . Flat texture, no special colors.

This is a good Rusty Photo . you can see the special color.

But now have a look at Excellent Rusty Photo #1 and Excellent Rusty Photo #2 . Now you see the special texture.

I found out that there are two types of rust – the flat rust and the loosed rust loosed rust. The loosed one is much better for photography, but it is not easy to find. Usually you can see it near the sea or other salty areas, or in ships & shipyards .

Browsing TE, I found many good rusty photos, but I would like to collect more information in order to learn more about best lighting conditions, angled, post- camera processing. So if someone has more info about his rusty photos please let this forum know.
