Homework

My recent photography homework topic was to shoot landscape, using a master photographer’s piece as inspiration.
egglestonMy inspiration for this project is William Eggleston. He often photographed urban areas. Vehicles and buildings made appearances in his shots, as well as roads and big sky. He was known for taking photos of the ugly. However, he was also known for taking photos with amazing color. But what I took from his collection of photos is his sweeping scenery. I used the photo titled Yellow market sign and parking lot, as the driving force behind my shoot.

My cousin, Jasmine, flew in from Boston. I took the opportunity while waiting at Orlando International Airport Cell Waiting Lot to get some homework done. Here is the contact sheet of the best 20. I would always welcome feedback from photographers in the know. PipHoward_Mod4_landscape

homesweethomeOwning a home is no joke. When we sold our house, I was happy, relieved, excited, anxious, and overwhelmed. Buying our new home was an adventure. We bought our RV without ever seeing it in person. Nervy, right?

I’m sure you’ve guessed by now that it worked out and we are pretty happy with our new home, on wheels.

Ain’t she cute? Her name is Campy Camper.

Homeowners again!
