One of the things I love about living in a high-rise apartment building is the play of the light across the cityscape. On this day, the shifting clouds gave us an ethereal little light show whose pattern may never be replicated. But seeing it once was special, and I’m grateful to have had the chance.
It’s time for another game of ‘Shinnfans choose something really important for me.’Â No, I’m not turning over naming rights for our next baby.Â Instead, I’d like to solicit your opinion on an art piece I plan to enter in the Reedley Fiesta Art Show Oct 11.Â I have one piece picked out, and it’s a piece I refuse to put online.Â I’ll only show it in person.Â But I’m allowed two submissions, and I’d like to have YOU take a look at my alternatives and vote for your favorite.Â Here are the rules:
- Leave a comment on this post with your vote
That’s the only rule.Â Feel free to discuss the relative merits of the pieces and explain your choice.Â I’ll take it all into account.
I’ve tried this before.Â There was a Shinn Photo blog awhile back, but it didn’t have a very well-defined concept and suffered from a lack of meaningful content.Â I trashed it after a while.Â Since then, photographers have gone crazy with client-side blogs, and I’ve happily decided to rip off the general idea and make a client-facing blog with photos and my professional writings.Â For now, you can see it at www.shinnphoto.com.Â It’s taking the place of my regular site while I get a new main web site online.Â Eventually, I expect it to end up at www.shinnphoto.com/blog.Â Let me know if you’re likely to read it!
This afternoon, we were shooting with a senior brother and sister set, Adam and Alyssa, in Morro bay. It was a mid-day shoot in Cayucos and near Morro Rock. The harsh sun was challenging, but we managed with a lot of help from Lisa and their mom and a few lighting tricks. Thanks for a fun afternoon, Adam and Alyssa!
Here are a few photos from last night’s evening expedition to the beach. E-mail me if you’d like a copy of any of then printed really large on canvas (and signed by the artist)!
Lisa and I were privileged to shoot Jeff an Lil’s wedding today. It was a simple, elegant wedding at Rob and Sarah Jackson’s house next to the Kings River. We enjoyed this special day, and we wish the happy couple God’s blessings on their marriage!
Welcome to the Shinn Photo family, Joshua!
Lisa had the privilege of taking Jakob Appleford’s first pictures this morning. He’s a beautiful little guy, as new as they come. Welcome, Jakob!
