My recent photography homework topic was to shoot landscape, using a master photographer’s piece as inspiration.
My 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.
