Rusty RV

Rusty RV

I love getting shots of old rusted out cars, trucks, gas pumps, etc... It seems the rust just pops in HDR! Of course, playing with Nik Color Efex a little helps. I'm not sure if this is a bus or an RV, but it's definitely seen the end of the road. I would love to see what it looks like on the inside, but who knows what one might find. That could be a scary thought indeed.

This will probably be my last post for the rest of week.  Thanksgiving is rolling around and we have many people to see and visit with!  It's gonna be great!  With that, you all have a great and happy Thanksgiving and thanks for reading my silly little blog!

This shot was processed as usual. In addition, I added the duplex filter from Nik Color Efex and added the darken/lighten filter twice to darken the areas around the edges of the shot to draw attention to the vehicle itself.

Other settings include:

Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6D EX DC HSM Autofocus Zoom
ISO: 200
Aperture: f11
Exposure Bias: -0.67

Focal Length: 11.5mm
Mode: Aperture Priority
Bracketing: 5 exposures with EVs ranging from -2 to +2 at 1 stop intervals
White Balance: Auto
Tripod: Induro AB0
Nikon MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord

  1. That would be a Fageol Moving van. They were made by the Twin Coach motor company in the 1950's. The one from your picture looks like a 1952 or 53. I found on that is pretty close to me that I am trying to buy and turn into my mobile studio. Here is what I want mine to look like.

  2. Thanks for the info! I was wondering what that was. Well, if you are looking for one really cheap and needs a little work, I know right where you can find it! ;-) Sounds like your studio will be pretty cool. Thanks again!

  3. Just swung back through here. Would love to know it you still know where the one you mentioned in November. I am still looking for one. they are a bit harder to find than I expected. you can email me at info [at]

    I would love to hear back from you.
