Thrift Store GOYA Winner :: Sherri Innis!

March 17, 2010 | GOYA

Our business manager, Sherri, just beat the ever living snot out of all of us in our third GOYA shootout. I’m 1 for 3. I should have used this other image. There I go, wanting to do something different and it didn’t pan out for me. Probably wouldn’t have helped. Sherri did a great job. The thrift store item in her shot is the gold dress that her sister, Jamie, is wearing.

Our intern, Robin, came in second with this kick ass image…

Dan the studio man came in third and Meg and I held hands walking into the sunset of 4th and 5th place.

Meg wants us to do a songwriting contest next time we do this. I’m glad none of us are competitive. :)

ETA – Do note that Meg had baby Hawke Danger with her during her shooting time and she was in a graveyard, in the rain, with a crying baby Hawke Danger. She had the toughest time of us all.

Cheers, Zack

PS – GOYA stands for Get Off Your Ass… And shoot!

    Not that it would have changed my vote, but I agree that your alternate shot was much better. Congrats to the winner! [My thanks to the rest for giving me great images to look at and ideas for future photo-stories!]

    Congrats Sherri! Great job by all. I actually thought B may have been Zack’s. Nice job Robin.

    Wow, so many of my guesses on who shot what were wrong. :)

    Congrats Sherri! Everyone did a great job. I love Robin’s portrait. You can’t look at that dude and not smile.

    Great shot by Robin too; I agree with Rhonda…certainly brings a smile to your face no matter how you’re feeling.

    I loved the shot that I think must have been Meg’s I was going to vote on that one but you don’t let us pick two :( I would hang those up in my house although now it seems a little creepy since I know its in a graveyard and all 😀

    I love the winning picture–I has an old world look to it that really sings!

    I find it interesting that I seem to choose that image that most makes me think about context and the subject in relationship to their environment. So far, this choice seems to be the opposite of the overall group pick.
