Last night I photographed the three Honolulu mayoral candidates in yet another debate–this time at KITV’s studio.  Their studio had some really nice, clean black tables with very reflective surface–perfect for the series of shots that I’m showcasing here.  With the just the right amount of squatting and getting on my knees, I was able to get the three candidates reflected in the table.

But aside from that, I also got to see my old news editor, and now news director for KITV, Chuck Parker.  He was my news editor when I first started working for the newspaper back in 2005, and it was always a pleasure working for and with him.  Here he is in action before the cameras roll.
