Vintage Tractor Fine Art Photography

Old vintage tractors live and breath in Springfield, New Hampshire.  I found this wonderful old, patina-ed Ford red and white vintage tractor working on building up a wood pile in a woodlot.

Part of an ongoing series of fine art photographs of vintage tractors in Vermont, New Hampshire and all around New England,  including a few as far north as Prince Edward Island, Canada.  You can see the entire collection at:  https://edward-fielding.pixels.com/art/tractor

The Ford N-Series tractors are a series of farm tractors that were produced by Ford between 1939 and 1952, spanning the 9N2N, and 8N models.

The 9N was the first American-made production-model tractor to incorporate Harry Ferguson’s three-point hitch system, a design still used on most modern tractors today. It was released in October 1939. The 2N, introduced in 1942, was the 9N with some improved details. The 8N, which debuted in July 1947, was a largely new machine featuring more power and an improved transmission. It proved to be the most popular farm tractor of all time in North America.

Out of the Past – Vintage Car Photography by Edward M. Fielding

Out of the Past by Edward M. Fielding
Out of the Past by Edward M. Fielding

One of my personal favorite photographs.  This classic old car was parked in a lot just over the Connecticut River from West Lebanon, New Hampshire in White River Junction Vermont.

It is gone now.  Moved somewhere unknown as the auto repair business that occupied the lot and stored its “future projects” cars has pushed out by a new development and a new bridge.  Suddenly “down by railroad tracks” was suddenly valuable property as the state installed a new bridge and the economy improved.

Glad I could capture this image while it existed.  And I revisited the same spot in different seasons over the year.  This winter scene with the snow and selective color is one of my favorite within the series.

Farm Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes

Farm fresh tomato farm stand photography

Farm Fresh Heirloom Tomatoes – Beautiful vintage look fine art photography of heirloom ripe red tomatoes at the farm stand at Muster Field Farm in North Sutton, New Hampshire. Perfect decor for the modern farmhouse or country kitchen. Beautiful light streaming through the windows of the old barn on to the fresh picked crop of juicy red sweet tomatoes on this wonderful fall day in New Hamshire.

Art Prints

The wonderful Muster Field Farm is a farm that has a lot of historical value in the tiny town of Sutton, New Hampshire. The farm was founded as the Harvey Homestead in 1772 by Matthew Harvey. The original house that was built had burnt down in 1787. The current house that is on the property was built shortly after, but has expanded since it was built. The new house was used as a tavern for the locals to drink at, the first post office and first library in Sutton, and a home for the descendants of the Harveys. In total, eight generations of Harvey descendants lived on the farm and added to it.

Capturing that rustic modern look with barn wood frames and vintage farm tractors

The hottest looks these days combine modern and a bit of rustic authenticity.  Modern Farmhouse, Industrial and Shabby chic interior design is where furniture and furnishings are either chosen for their appearance of age and signs of wear and tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the appearance of an antique.

Barn Wood – Beautiful Recycled Wood

Barn wood is processed wood retrieved from its original application for purposes of subsequent use. Most reclaimed lumber comes from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses, although some companies use wood from less traditional structures such as boxcars, coal mines and wine barrels.

Reclaimed or antique lumber is used primarily for decoration and home building, for example for siding, architectural details, cabinetry, furniture and flooring.

Barn wood frames take advantage of the beautiful patina and rustic look of old wood.

American Auto Icon The 57 Chevy Bel Air

Chevy Bel Air at the Beach

The 1957 Chevrolet is a car which was introduced by Chevrolet in September 1956 for the 1957 model year. It was available in three series models: the upscale Bel Air, the mid-range Two-Ten, and the One-Fifty. A two-door station wagon, the Nomad was produced as a Bel Air model. An upscale trim option called the “Delray” was available for two-ten 2-door sedans. It is a popular and sought after classic car. These vehicles are often restored to their original condition and sometimes modified. The car’s image has been frequently used in toys, graphics, music, movies and television. The ’57 Chevy, as it is often known, is an auto icon

Life is good when you head down to the beach for sunset, snap a few photographs of an American Bald Eagle chewing on a Sheep Head Fish, get chased out by no-seem-ums and catch a classic vintage red and white Chevy Bel Air parked right up on the sand.

With moments of light fading and the threat of the owner, keys in hand, wandering back towards his baby, the brain has to think fast. Settings, ISO, shutterspeed, composition, aperture, how angle the shot to keep that garbage can out of the frame, owner approaching just over the bend, yikes can I get it? Shots taken within moments and then the moment is gone. Car, beach, sky, captured. Post processing to bring out the car’s beauty along with the colors of the perfect evening at the beach.

Art Prints

What a day dream to find such a beautiful car parked as if it was ready for a magazine shoot. One of those moments you can plan, you just have to be ready for these special life moments. Sure you could plan it. If you had a fashion spread budget, hired the car for the evening, had a light crew or perhaps a movie budget. But perhaps its somewhat easier to simply put yourself at the ready and in place for these moments of serendipity.

The concept of a typewriter dates back at least to 1714, when Englishman Henry Mill filed a vaguely-worded patent for “an artificial machine or method for the impressing or transcribing of letters singly or progressively one after another.”

But the first typewriter proven to have worked was built by the Italian Pellegrino Turri in 1808 for his blind friend Countess Carolina Fantoni da Fivizzano; unfortunately, we do not know what the machine looked like, but we do have specimens of letters written by the Countess on it. (For details, see Michael Adler’s excellent 1973 book The Writing Machine. Carey Wallace’s 2010 novel The Blind Contessa’s New Machine is based on the relationship between the Countess and Turri.)

Typewriters of this type were the word processors of the day and were found in every office and every up scale home. Today some writers and novelists still prefer to type out their books and letters using these reliable old mechanical machines with keys and ribbons of ink.

The photograph by Edward M. Fielding gives this old workhouse plenty of drama and weight using low key photography techniques in the studio.

Low-key lighting is a style of lighting for photography, film or television. It is a necessary element in creating a chiaroscuro effect. Low key light accentuates the contours of the subject by throwing areas into shade while a fill light or reflector may illuminate the shadow areas to control contrast.

Recently Sold: Old Ford Tractor Colored Pencil

My neighbor on Hayfield Road in Etna, New Hampshire, part of Hanover home of Dartmouth College, has this beautiful old red New England dairy barn which we walk the dog by nearly every single day. He used to have a couple of beef cows so we always call this walk – the trip to the cow. The dog understands.

Anyway he also occasionally brings out his cute vintage Ford tractor with its blue and white paint scheme and rounded styling. It really is cute. If any tractor was going to star in a Pixels “Cars” movie, this one would be it.

Recently a large canvas of this image was purchased and is going to Washington, DC.

Vintage Tractor Prints for Refined Rustic Decor

Cornish Windsor Covered Bridge

This fine art photograph of an old vintage tractor on  a farm in the rural New Hampshire town of Cornish makes a fine print for any modern farmhouse style of decor, refined rustic, cottage, country or farm decorating.

The sepia toned print by Edward M. Fielding looks great in an off white cream colored mat as shown below.  A recent customer purchased this large 24 x 30 inch print and matted, mounted on foam core for a client in  Woodbury, CT.  The client has an heirloom frame waiting for the print.

Vintage Tractor Photography for that modern farmhouse style
Vintage Tractor Photography for that modern farmhouse style

I really like this combination of the off white mat and the sepia tone photograph as ordered by the designer.  It looks like an old vintage photograph even though this old tractor is still in use today on the Cornish farm.

Cornish you might know is famous for its covered bridges and the home of recluse writer JD Salinger who wrote “Catcher in the Rye” and is quoted as saying:

I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy.
 
I’m sick of just liking people. I wish to God I could meet somebody I could respect.
 
An artist’s only concern is to shoot for some kind of perfection, and on his own terms, not anyone else’s.
Cornish has historically been a well-known summer resort for artists and writers. Sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens began coming to Cornish in 1885, seeking a studio away from the summer heat of New York City. Artist friends followed him, including painter and illustrator Maxfield Parrish, who designed and built his estate, the Oaks, in the area. The surrounding area became the center of the popular Cornish Art Colony

Vintage tractor photographs from the New England area by Edward M. Fielding can be purchased in a wide variety of frames from simple black museum type metal frames to hundreds of wooden frames as well as printed on paper, canvas, metal, wood and acrylic as well as matching products such as throw pillows and tote bags.

Hundreds of frames and mat combinations to choose from - or get it printed on canvas, wood, or metal.

Sometimes you just get lucky

Do you know a photographer who always seems to get that lucky break?  Some amazing shot that looks like he/she might actually know what they are doing?  Well, truth be told, getting lucky has a lot to do with being prepared and ready.

Sure luck happens. But the working photographer puts themselves in situations in order to increase the chances of luck and they are always prepared to capture moments when they suddenly appear.

One of my favorite things is finding vintage cars in the wild.  This particular shot of an old vintage truck in front of a dinner looks like might have been planned and set up for a magazine shoot but it was completely a lucky situation.

American Classics by Edward M. Fielding
American Classics by Edward M. Fielding

We had just dropped off our son at summer camp on Squam Lake (On Golden Pond) and were headed home when we decided to stop off in TIlton, New Hampshire for dinner at the Tilt ‘n Diner.  As we are finishing up our burgers and milkshakes, we start seeing vintage cars roll into the parking lot just as the sun is starting to get low on the horizon.

What timing!  We were dining at a spot an hour from house in the middle of the week and it just happened to be old car night!  So of course my wife took car of the bill and I headed out to get my camera and started shooting.

Unlike at a car show when the cars are all packed in tight and often festooned with awards or signs, this situation was perfect as the diner provided a great nostalgic background for the cars and as they drove, the first cars had plenty of space around them so they appeared more natural.
