Architecture

Jim Tincher Photography Senior Model Miranda is featured on the Seniors Ignite website this month!

It feels so good to have my Architecture shoot with Miranda featured once again on the Seniors Ignite website! The challenge was to integrate architecture into the shoot. I thought about it long and hard and decided I wanted something iconic. Bridges are often that “iconic” structure such as London Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge or the Golden Gate Bridge… Truth is, we have a historical and iconic bridge right here in Kentucky that was the inspiration for the well known Brooklyn Bridge.

The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, named for the civil engineer who designed it, has been an iconic Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky suspension bridge along the city skyline for nearly a century and a half. When the Roebling Suspension Bridge opened to traffic on January 1, 1867, its 1,057-foot span made it the longest suspension bridge in the world, a record it retained until 1883 when Roebling’s most famous project, the Brooklyn Bridge opened. During this shoot the famous lights that span the wires were not operating due to maintenance.

The Great American Ball Park is another iconic structure near the foot of the John Roebling Suspension Bridge. Many of Reds fans walked across the bridge to the ball park to see the Reds play a night game. We were fortunate enough during this shoot for the Cincinnati Reds to be playing at home, which in addition to the tug boats and other city lights on the Ohio provided the ambient background lighting.

I hope you enjoy the images of Miranda as much as I did in taking them….

Texture

Jim Tincher Photography Senior Model Mikenna is featured on the Seniors Ignite website this month!

It has been a long time since I’ve entered into any photography competitions and I’m beyond excited that Mikenna from my Class of 2018 Senior Models was selected to be featured this month! Each month hundreds of photographers from across the country compete in challenges to push skill sets and try to see things in a new way for the chance of being featured on the Seniors Ignite website as a featured photographer.

Each year I select a new group of Senior Class Models from the local high schools in the surrounding area and the numbers will vary year to year. This year there are 10 (soon to be) high schools seniors who showed interest in my photography to represent Jim Tincher Photography throughout the year. During this coming year they will work with me on special projects, be featured in my marketing and will be taking part in destination shoots, fashion shoots and other special projects as they arise. I am so pumped to have this team of amazing girls.

This month’s challenge was to use “texture” as the photographic theme.

When I think of texture, I think of the physical things you touch, and when you touch how you feel the changes of those dimensions. The contours of a fabric, the crispness of a leaf or the prick of a needle. Your eyes confirm what your sense of touch tell you.

When I thought about this challenge I wanted it to be different from how I normally see texture.

I love the grace and beautiful movement of ballet dancers. I know their costumes have texture, but does their movement? If their movement is texture how do you show that texture of motion?

Using a mixture of lighting types I hope I’ve captured the beauty and the texture of a dancer in motion that eyes can never see….

I hope you enjoy viewing these images as much as I enjoyed creating them with Mikenna!

The 12 Competition

I’m so stoked to have been selected as a finalist for “The 12”!!!
Senior photography at it’s finest!!!

I can’t begin to describe how excited I am at this very moment. Just a little while ago I received word that the Senior Session I had submitted for “The 12 Competition” has

been selected as a finalist in a National Competition!

Even if it goes no further than this and we don’t make it as part of “The 12” I consider it to be an accomplishment as this is my first year of having delved into Senior Photography.

You can see who the other finalist are at;

When A Community Comes Together…

Q. What happens when cross town high school rivals come together to raise funds for a family in need?

A. Somebody gets a pie in the face!

On Aug. 10, Bradley Camic, a 16-year-old junior at Frankfort High School, had a seizure at soccer practice. Camic was later diagnosed with encephalitis — an inflammation of the brain, caused by infection or an allergic reaction. He has since been put in a medically induced coma at UK hospital so his brain can completely rest giving it time to heal.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been pleasantly amazed at how a community has come together to help this family.

What has had a bigger impact on me though is seeing how the student bodies of all three Frankfort High Schools have come together at each sporting event to offer prayers and support of a fellow student.

Beginning Thursday (August 27, 2015) over a 24 hour period the students of Franklin County High School and Western Hills High School raised over $9000.00 in support of Bradley and his family. To this there was a friendly competition between the two schools. The looser, well… that school’s principal would get a pie in the face.

During half time at mid field the fund raising winner was announced. Buddy Sampson, the principal of Franklin County made the comment after receiving his pie, “that was the most gentle pie in the face I’ve every had”.

It’s a small world after all!

Prayers continue to go out for Bradley and his family.
