Ghosts, Ghouls and Glowsticks

In the spirit of Halloween, Photojournalism students experimented with exposure, long shutter speeds, glow sticks, fire and Halloween masks in our blacked-out studio. We adjusted our camera settings, set up tripods and created light effects around festive props to produce some amazingly spooky effects.

Guitarist Katelynn Freese leads students in worship after completing a recent hour-long Sunrise Stretch class on the Quad. Students woke up early for the class, which met outside that morning, to take advantage of cool morning temperatures. 

What is Your Why?
