Shorthorn Shots of the Week 11/14

I feel like I have been working non-stop for weeks now. Thus, this Shots of the Week is a combo showing some of my favorite stuff from the past couple of weeks. I'll let the images and video speak for themselves since it is a lot to recall and I don't want this post to take up the whole blog. As always, all the assignments that I've been shooting become learning experiences as I aim to shoot differently than I have in the past. Different angles, techniques, etc. In the end, quality over quantity is my overarching goal these days. Enjoy.

Disaster Training

Curnow and his flight crew landed a helicopter on the field at the beginning of training and gave tours of the components that they use on a daily basis. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
Nursing students could examine two medical mannequins with various simulated injuries on Friday. Each mannequin uses interchangeable parts that can be switched out to fit the needs of training. (The Shorthorn: Andrew Buckley)
