Behind the Shot: Corn Stalk Stylist

MTTThis is a direct mail letter that my coworkers put together to promote
our baler teeth. Looks great, right? Good looking baler, good looking
crop, great angle.  So what goes in to getting a shot like this? Well,
that's a little more complicated.

See, the trouble is, there's just not a lot of room under a round baler.

We also had to make sure that the teeth were ready for their close-up.

Yep, that's me. I'm under a baler trying to repaint the teeth (paint wears off as you run the baler) and make sure that the windrow looked just right for the shot. Sure, you can do amazing things with Photoshop these days, but it's still cheaper and more efficient to just style the shot when you're there.

Did I mention there isn't a whole lot of room under there? The factory folks found this entire procedure hilarious, by the way.

At least they were nice enough not to step on me while I was down there.
