    I'm taking a landscape photography class this semester, and the class went to the Maine coast for a week. I'm not really much of a landscaper, so I didn't really know how to approach the class, so I packed my Sony A100, my Minolta 35mm, my Pentax K100 35mm, a Holga, a Toyo 4x5 and a Deerdorf 8x10. I did most of the shooting with the 8x10, one of my classmates used the 4x5, I only got two shots off with it all week. Only shot 3 rolls with the Holga, wish I would have shot more, but I burned up a good bit of 35mm in addition to the 8x10. I developed the roll film today, but don't have any of it scanned...I was too poop'd to even make contact prints. I'll tackle the sheet film tomorrow, but here are a few shots from the digital.

    Truth be told, I didn't really feel like I got what I should have. I looked over some of my classmates work, and I was amazed at their images...and they were standing right where I was...and I didn't get it.

    Anyway...here goes...enjoy...

    I was standing less than a foot away from a 100+ ft drop off...

    Well, it looks to me like you're an exceptionally good photographer dealling with a curve. The nature of the landscape beast is a little different. Once you make a few passes at the genre, you'll be totally smoking. These are very cool anyway.

    You mentioned your classmates work; Something I've noticed about work that looks killer in these situations, is, on a second look, you see it differently.
