As one of the largest ballroom dance competitions in the country, the Ohio Star Ball gave me plenty of chances to utilize its theatrics to my utmost advantage. Although I tried to stay out of the camera's way, I wouldn't be surprised if I show up on the PBS broadcast of this event in February. Oh well . . .

This chick means business.

I like the lines in this shot.

I managed to catch a nice dip from a couple competing in the "Rising Star" category at the Ohio Star Ball on Sunday.

I'm sure Miss. Allie Long (18) is happy no one ran this picture.

What can I say, I had a great time.

A portrait of everyone's favorite audio technician, taken sometime last year. If you didn't notice, he also happens to be king of some distant land named, "Innovation Park".

Despite having to use a flash, being freezing cold and being quite wet, I still really like this shot. I'm sure the CDT would have liked it too had I not immediately turned around to shoot something else, forgetting to grab their names. Oh the trials and tribulations of learning the tricks of the trade.

Anyway, the witches at the Haunted Granary ordered a few couples to share gummy worms, Lady and the Tramp style. As you can see, it was pretty cute, but also pretty funny.

Posluzny's eyes don't even begin to reflect the disappointment heard in Joe Paterno's voice, 10 minutes prior to this photo.

With Posluzny (31) locked in a stare-down, I don't think Illinois quarterback Isiah Williams (7) is going anywhere.

An all right interception by Penn State safety, Anthony Scirrotto (7), if I don't say so myself.

Oh Justin King, are you daydreaming of first downs again?

Derrick McPhearson (4), a wide receiver for Illinois, makes a nice catch during Saturday's game.

"Thou didst mold us dear old State"

So, what is it that other schools do on Saturdays? I mean, I don't bleed blue and white, but look at that!

Three-year-old Ava Farahani was ready to go cheer for her Nittany Lions prior to Saturday's match up against Michigan.

When I say JoePa, you say terno! JoePa! Terno! JoePa! Terno!

Oh hey lion. Great hair.

So the polar bears were under construction and the 8-week-old tiger cubs were only allowed to be seen by the vets, sooo I settled for the octopus. Cool tentacles though, huh?

This is certainly a case where there is just as good of a picture in the crowd as there is on the field. Look at those faces!

Defensive end, Tim Shaw (20) attempts to sack Andrew Brewer, quarterback for Northwestern.

Tailback, Tony Hunt (26), dives over the pile to make a Penn State touchdown against Northwestern.

"Let me say one more time . . . I never worry about things until I have to. Ok?? If I can't do anything about it, I don't worry about it" -at the post-game press conference in response to whether or not Penn State would play Minnesota on 10/7.

When someone asks me about my quintessential image of a college football player, I will just refer them to this photo. Paul Posluzny, you are my epitome of a linebacker.

Lauren, a friend of my brother, kindly allowed me to shoot her freshmen supplemental housing dorm for an assignment. I give Lauren and the other six other girls in the converted lounge a lot of credit for mantaining their sanity. I mean, I couldn't even deal with two other girls in a room.

Two of D. Greenberg's acupuncture models outline the energy channels of the male and female body, complete with acupoints. Hair-fine needles are inserted into these points to aid the body in balance and function.

Portait of an acupuncturist. Looks creepy? Ha, you should have been there.

Playing around with Trevor's D50, naturally feeling a little jealous.

Taylor, actually 3, kept telling us that she was 4 going on 5, but we still loved her. Being the cutest mouse around, how could you not?

While I was waiting for the lion/Dave to arrive, I decided to shoot a little of the WPSU telethon for the station. In this shot, the station manager, Tracy Vosburgh, is on the air promoting WPSU and its premiere of the Orange Bowl Special.

Mallard duck on campus?

When I decide which of these shots I like the best, I'll take the other two down.

Same angle, different day, different sunset.

Rutgers got the best of us in the NIT game, but . . . *sigh* maybe next year, boys.

A sunset was the perfect accent to the rainstorm hovering above Happy Valley. Or was the rainstorm the perfect accent to the sunset? Who knows.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you . . .

"Oh, Oscar(s)!"

In an attempt to get the best shots, I went to the Kodak Theatre the day before, the day of and the day after the Academy Awards, but never got as close as I wanted. Unfortunately, my Penn State media credential didn't cut it at the Oscars and even if it had, I think security would have been a little suspicious when I ran up to hug one of the giant statues.

I'd like to thank Grauman's Chinese Theatre for providing the perfect hard lighting for this shot. I was walking around photographing the prints, like any good tourist would, when my dad's shadow stepped into the frame. Being that it was Bogie's square, I thought the silhouette shot paid rightful respect to the biggest star of film noir. Besides, my dad loves Bogart so it was a nice shot for him too.

After playing with the orange balloon for a while, I decided that it was time to photograph another one of my beautiful Four Diamonds friends, Katie.
