Tractor Photography Tips
- Portrait vs. Landscape
Due to the layout of our catalog, portrait photos are more likely to be used on the catalog cover.
- Where’s the Sun?
Natural light is good, but too much can create shadows that could take attention away from the tractor. The contrast between the light and dark areas could be too much for the standard settings on your camera to automatically adjust. Overcast days are usually the best for most photography.
- Location, Location, Location!
Not everyone has access to mountains, fields or a scenic view, but that’s okay! After all, we’re looking for photos of your tractor! You’ve worked hard on your tractor, let it shine! Simply moving your tractor outdoors, parking in front of a barn, or moving it to an open area, etc. can make a huge difference.
- Avoid Distractions
We get it, shops and barns attract clutter and aren’t exactly known for being peachy clean and that’s okay. However, backgrounds can be very distracting in a photo. When you’re familiar with a setting it’s easy to look past things that are right in front of you. Take an extra moment to look around and make sure there’s nothing laying around that will take attention away from your tractor.
- What’s Your Angle?
Before you start snapping away, take a walk around your tractor and see which angle will offer the best composition. You may be very surprised how different things can look from another viewpoint and with the light coming from a different direction.
- What’s Old is New
Whether your tractor is restored, rusty, in use or resting, we look forward to viewing all of your tractor photos!
- Looking for inspiration?

We know that in the world of online sales, everyone is looking for a deal. Lately a lot of companies have been popping up (most of them originating overseas) and listing coupons or deals for all sorts of different websites. Recently Steiner Tractor Parts has become a target of some of these coupon aggregator sites and we wanted to take a moment and address this with our customers.
We do not honor the coupons advertised by 3rd party sites without prior authorization. These sites (like PRMDeal, HotDeal, CouponDeal, DealCove, etc) are not affiliated with Steiner Tractor Parts. These sites entice you to click “coupon code” so they can track you around the internet and send you advertising. Our recommendation is to not visit this type of site nor click on their links. It is not a safe, secure internet practice.

We are proud to join Mecum Auctions in supporting the Curing Kids Cancer organization. Since 2012, Curing Kids Cancer and Mecum Auctions have raised more than $4 million to fund innovative research and treatments for pediatric cancers. This year, Steiner is providing the parts to restore a Farmall tractor that will be auctioned at the 2018 Iowa Premier. All proceeds will benefit Curing Kids Cancer.
gift card is David Burnette of Canfield, Ohio. David has
been a Steiner customer for over 2 years and is looking
forward to working on his antique tractor. Pictured above

J’ai donné un tracteur Farmall 200 1954 à mon mari pour sa fête en mai 2010. Il n’était pas en bon état on a essayé de le faire réparer mais sans succès. Un jour un ami Pierre Lorrain nous dit qu’il acceptait de nous le remettre en fonction et de le remettre en neuf. Il a fait un miracle. Il est comme neuf et tout fonctionne grâce à Pierre et à votre site ou on peut avoir les pièces pour ces tracteurs. Même la pelle fonctionne. Mon mari est super content. Donc merci à vous et à Pierre.
I gave a farmall 200 1954 tractor to my husband for his party in May 2010. It was not in good condition we tried to have it repaired but without success. One day a friend Pierre Lorrain tells us that he would get it back into operation and refurbish it. He did a miracle. It’s like new and everything works thanks to Pierre and your site where you can have the parts for these tractors. Even the shovel works. My husband is super happy. So thanks to you and Pierre.
