Summer of Farms – Part 2

This massive farm project is finally coming to an end. I had a great time, and met so many interesting people. The farm families were all very open and kind. I should have started a blog on all the amazing meals I’ve eaten in the tiny little towns from Arkansas to the Dakotas. I still have quite a bit of editing to do. My Canon cameras (especially the 5D MarkIII) have gotten a pretty serious workout, and are probably overdue for a cleaning after being in dusty grain bins and wheat harvesters. My total shot count for this project will be a little over 17,000. Obviously, I can’t share all of those images. But here are some I’ve been working on recently. I hope you enjoy them- Farm photographyFarm photographyFarm photographyFarm photography - farm dog in soybeansFarm photography - farmer walking on grain silo This lady was pretty amazing. She’s a great grandmother in North Dakota, and she’s been driving the family’s combine since the mid 50′s. She even rattled off every model she’s ever driven. In order to get this shot I had to wedge myself down in the corner of the cab. It was difficult keeps my knees and long legs out of the shot while using my wide 17-40mm lens. Photography sometimes requires some contortionist abilities. Farm photography- woman driving combine
