One of my favorite events this year has been “Drool in the Pool” ┬áBasically, Muncie’s public pool opens the pool up to dogs the day before they drain it for the winter! Dogs and their owners pay a fee to get in, and the money goes toward the Animal Rescue Fund and the Muncie Animal Shelter. I had a blast on this warm Saturday shooting dogs and their owners. I’d love to see an event like this in Hammond. Does anyone know of something like this in Northwest Indiana?

I’m back working at The Daily News at Ball State. This semester we’re off to a pretty strong start. We’re pushing for a digital first framework and trying to add more multimedia to our website. We’re working on videos, photo galleries, and audio slideshows. It’s been pretty exciting to see everyone branch out into doing multimedia projects for the paper. I recently shot Romeo and Juliet, a Ball State University production hosted at University Theatre. I really enjoy shooting theatre and dance, and I’m glad I get so many opportunities to do so at school.
