No comment on the story, but I like the way you photographed Rosen with light coming out from behind his head. How did you do that? Or do you let candidates submit studio photos of themselves rather than taking them the way they are in real life? I see all these realtor photos. I realize they're in ads, something your news department has no control over, but they're ridiculous. The women agents, in particular, look abnormally young, smooth-faced and happy. I hope that doesn't become a trend in the news section. (None of this is meant as a criticism of Rosen, who I think will be a very successful D.A.)

Agreed that P.R. shots these days are ridiculous,
but image/brand is everything to some people.

They get that effect by taking the shot early/late in the day
with the sun at the back (with an angle to offset so as not to interfere with the camera position). You will see a variation of this in shots of national leaders with 'halos' around their head as the shot is taken from the floor, looking up at the circular, well-lit ceiling of the state house they are in.

As a comment to the news of the story.

I hope he has luck using this new unit on the
un-prosecuted de anza college rape that was intentionally
overlooked by the previous d.a.

will be interested when it is revealed who
will be taken down in this unresolved matter.
