March Photo Contest

So sorry for my delay. It's a busy retirees life. I don't know how I ever had time for a job. Funny how I should mention that because my professional life was in marketing....eh, of sorts. 50 years with Macy's visual merchandising. 50 years of making merchandise look good to customers. That with training in photography I feel I know composition....arranging objects, ideas for sales appeal. SO with that the 'March Photo Contest' theme shall be, presenting your Airstream as if is in an Airstream Advertisement. The examples I am thinking of are the classic ads of the past where the coaches are in settings that make you really want the Airstream lifestyle. I planned to include some examples but my laptop isn't brining up the websites for me. So as not to delay this contest any longer I will post the examples later. Oh, and also don't forget views from inside of your coach.

Have some fun!

Neil

Any chance we can get an idea of your grading criteria? Just something nice to know at the start of the contest...

To help kick it off

The Airstream life is about good times, relaxation, family and friends...
One is of the grandkids and us at the end of a great weekend.
The other is from my world famous (yeah right) "kickin' back" series...

ps: If you are going to use this in an ad can you make me a little thinner?

Somthing like this Neil?.....From an old advertisement for Airstream that was in National Geographic about 1950 ish (not real sure on time frame).
We'll have to look through the archives and see if we have somthing that meets this criteria, should be lots of fun....good theme choice...

Streamstream, YES; ZoominC6, YES;....casa3805, nice family shot but the AS should be the focal point....however, your kickin' back, YES;...... reinergirl, Yes, (if you are in the bubble bath)...in an Airstream . What I will look for is how you 'promote' your Airstream...the Airstream should be the focal point. People in the view works but should be enjoying the Airstream experience. casa's family shot is a portrait that just 'happens' to have an AS in the background.
I'll be hangin' around to guide you good folks. Find in your pictures the photos that you show off your Airstream experience.

Neil
