A full pre-med schedule fills my days, but I still have chances to update the blog every now and then. Today, we have the assignments I've done for the Star in the last two weekends. You can find full galleries of the Miss Irvington Halloween Pageant, the Franklin College football team infested with Speedway High School alums, and the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on the Star's website.

Side note: I did a fancy thing during the pageant. I saw the huge window behind the stage and thought at first that it would transmit annoying backlight (it was still daylight when the pageant started). I put two radio-controlled flashes on each side of the stage, though, and when they went off, it created the mirror-like effect they use in interrogation room windows. The outside was dark by then, and so in the pictures for which I used the flashes, everything that's happening inside is reflected back, including the audience. I rather liked that effect, and I should find other occasions to use it.
