Free Industrial Stock Photos

In this post I have collected 25 examples of free industrial stock photos from our gallery. Industrial stock photos are always in high demand as they illustrate production, architecture and workforce. Industrial images are also popular to showcase industrial pollution on the environment, although many industries now focus on eco-friendly production.

Industry is a segment of the economy involving the manufacturing and transportation of products. Since the industrial revolution in the mid-18th century, the standard of living for the general population began to increase consistently for the first time in history. The industrial revolution saw the development and popularization of mechanized means of production as a replacement for hand production. It led to the development of factories for large-scale production with consequent changes in society.

Oil, mining, shipbuilding, steel, chemicals, machinery manufacturing and similar industries are examples of heavy industry. They are very capital-intensive, meaning that they require a lot of machinery and equipment to produce. Often, they are criticized for their environmental impacts.

The images below showcase different industries, work environment and industrial architecture. You are free to download the images and use them without attribution. For more free industrial stock photos please visit our gallery.

Free Fire Stock Photos – 25 Flaming Examples

There is something fascinating about fire, the dancing flames and how the shadows interact with the soft light. In this post I have collected 25 free fire stock photos from our gallery that I think are really good and useful. Stock photos of fire are popular with digital artists that use them to add dramatic visuals to their designs.

Photographing fire can be challenging but also a lot of fun. Apart from not burning yourself or your equipment is to not use flash, use manual mode and your widest aperture setting. If you have a tripod you can play around with the shutter speed and ISO settings to create the mood and ambiance you’re after.

If you don’t have the gear or the settings to shoot your own photos, you’ll find plenty of fire images around the internet. We have a pretty big collection of fire, flames and sparks that can be used for all sorts of overlays.

Free Red Stock Photos

If you came here looking for free red stock photos, you’re in the right place. Often we need a photo to fit a certain color to match an existing design or color scheme. Colors have different emotions and meanings attached to them, depending on what culture you belong to.

Being one of the first colors in prehistoric art, the pigments of red were used by the Ancient Egyptians and Mayans as ceremonial face painting. The Chinese also used the color red to paint early pottery and the walls of palaces.

Red is the color at the end of the visible spectrum of light, next to orange and opposite violet. It is a primary color in the RGB color model and the CMYK color model, and is the complementary color of cyan. While red is the color most associated with love, it also the color most frequently associated with danger, hatred, anger, aggression and war. But in China, India and many other Asian countries it is the color of symbolizing happiness and good fortune.

In this post I have selected 30 images that feature red as their primary color. They range from abstract backgrounds to pictures of food, objects and people. I hope you find something that you can use for your current or future projects, enjoy!

This is the time to pick up your camera and start shooting amazing images of the fall landscape. We’re always in need of more free autumn stock photos, so why not share them with the Stockvault community.

Autumn is a beautiful season and marks the transition from summer to winter. In the Northern Hemisphere autumn starts in September but in the Southern Hemisphere it starts in March. With shortening daylight and lower temperatures most trees start shedding their leaves. It’s the season of leaf peeping, also called foliage tour, where people travel to view and photograph the fall foliage in areas where leaves change colors in autumn.

During a few weeks in the autumn season the leaves, mostly green ones, take on various autumn colors. The distinctive colors of fall are shades of orange, red, yellow, purple, black and brown. This is commonly referred to as autumn colours or autumn foliage in British English and fall colors, fall foliage or simply foliage in American English.

I have hand-picked 20 beautiful autumn stock photos from our main gallery that you can use for your website, blog and designs. Enjoy!
